Wapen van Kieldrecht

Official blazon

  • (1818) Van keel, beladen met twee staande leeuwen van zilver, vasthoudende een banier van synople.
  • (1849) D'argent, à une neffe au naturel, portant à dextre un pavillon d'argent à une fasce de gueules; la dite neffe accostée de deux écussons d'azur, à la fleur de lys d'or, le tout surmonté de la lettre K de sable.

Origin/meaning

The first arms were granted on April 29, 1818 and new arms on January 26, 1849.

The arms are derived from the common seal of Doel and Kieldrecht from the 16th century. The ship probably shows the importance of shipping on the Schelde river, and/or the many inundations caused by the river. The small shields with the fleur-de-lis are of unknown origin. The letter K is the town's initial. See also the arms of Doel.
