Blason de Hannut

Official blazon

De gueules, à un château ouvert et crénelé, d'or maçonné de sable, le donjon de même, chargé des armes de Brabant-Limbourg.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on August 16, 1844.

The arms are based on the medieval seals of the city, which showed a castle and the arms of the Dukes of Brabant-Limburg. The oldest seal with the arms dates from 1360. The arms may be designed in 1355 when the city rights were granted by Duchess Johanna of Brabant-Limburg.
