Wapen van Neerhespen/Coat of arms (crest) of Neerhespen

Official blazon

Gevierendeeld 1. en 4. van zilver met een leeuw van keel, gekroond van goud 2. en 3. van azuur met een gespoorde laars van zilver., gespoord van dezelfde kleur, paalswijs geplaatst. Het schild getopt met een helm van zilver, gekroond, getralied, gehalsband en omboord van goud, gevoerd en gehecht van keel, met dekkleden van zilver en van azuur.


The arms were officially granted on May 24, 1960.

The arms are those of the Stappers family. The boots are a canting element, as stappen means to walk. Pieter Stappers bought the manors of Meensel, Neerhespen, Overhespen and Gussenhoven in 1750. The family were the last Lords of the manor until the early 19th century.
