- (1819) -
- (1838) D'azur à un saint Remacle d'or.
The arms were officially granted on September 15, 1819 and again on December 31, 1838.
The arms show St. Remaclus. The meaning or origin of these arms is not known. They were granted in 1819 by the Dutch government in the Dutch national colours of blue and gold. After the Belgian independence the municipal council had a long meeting on the arms. Even though they had no idea of the origin or the meaning, they also had no alternative. The arms were thus again granted in 1838.
The arms in the Koffie Hag/Café Hag albums +/- 1930
