Wapen van Leefdaal

Official blazon

Van goud met een vijfblad van keel geknopt van azuur.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on March 5, 1954.

The arms are those of the important medieval family Van Leefdaal, who used 3 roses or three cuinquefoils in their arms. The seals of the local council from 1275, 1344, 1393 and the 16th century, however, only showed a single rose or other flower, never the three flowers. Therefore, the arms with one flower were granted in 1954.
