INGELMUNSTER

Province : West-Vlaanderen

Wapen van Ingelmunster

Official blazon

In goud een hertenkop van natuurlijke kleur met een gewei van tien punten van keel.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on January 26, 1849.

The arms are those of the old estate and barony of Ingelmunster. In 1845 the muniicpality asked for the arms of the last Lords of Ingelmunster, the Van Plotho family. The High Court of Nobility refused, and the municipality asked for the historical arms of the barony, however, the red colour was wrongly described, so the arms were granted with a deer's head proper.

Below two versions of the arms in the Koffie Hag/Café Hag albums +/- 1930:

The correct historical arms

In the 1990s the Flemish Heraldic Council approached the municipality to correct the arms, but the municipality was not interested.
