Dutch Van lazuur, beladen ter regter zijde van een staanden leeuw, gekeerd ter linker zijde, en ter linker zijde van een staanden hond, gekeerd ter regter zijde, houdende tusschen beide de hoorn van overvloed met een star boven dezelve in 't veld, alles van goud.
English blazon wanted

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on August 4, 1818.

The meaning of the arms is not known. The cornucopia probably indicates agriculture, the meaning of the lion and dog is not known.

The colours are the Dutch national colours, as in 1813 the mayor applied without indicating the colours. The arms were thus granted in the national colours. When the arms were confirmed after the Belgian independence, the colours were not changed.

Literature: Servais, 1955
