Wapen van Linkebeek

Official blazon

Van zilver met keper van keel, vergezeld van drie Morenkoppen, omwonden van keel.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on November 6, 1956.

The arms are those of the De Man family. The arms are shown in an oval (female) shape, as the last Lady of Linkebeek was Maria Barbara de Man de Speelhoven, who acquired the village in 1772 and owned it until the end of the century.
