Van sabel met zes schelpen van zilver gesteld 3,2, en 1.
The arms were officially granted on september 16, 1898.
The origin of these arms is not known. It has been speculated that the arms are based on the arms of the medieval van Uytenberghe, who used three scallops. Any relation with the village, however, is not known. The arms already appear on the seal from 1649 for Uitbergen and Overmere.
The arms in the Koffie Hag/Café Hag albums +/- 1930
Literature : Servais, 1955
