Armorial de Belgique
The arms were officially granted on December 8, 1819 and again on April 12, 1841.
The arms show barrels and a press, both used for making butter, indicating dairy farming as the main activity in the early 19th century.
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.
The arms in the Koffie Hag/Café Hag albums +/- 1930
