Province : Oost-Vlaanderen

Wapen van Bevere / Arms of Bevere

Official blazon

  • (1818) Van lazuur beladen met een korenbloem staande op een terras alles van goud.
  • (1844) Een blauw veld, met eene gulden gebladerde koornbloem, groeijende ook op een gulden heuvel.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on August 4, 1818 and confirmed on October 9, 1844.

The arms show a cornflower as symbol for the agriculture, the main means of income in the 19th century. The colours are the Dutch national colours, as in 1818 Belgium was part of the Netherlands. If no historical colours were known, the national colours (blue and gold) were used. Strangely, the colours are opposite to the natural colours, as cornflowers are blue.
