Wapen van Oordegem

Official blazon

  • (1819) Van lazuur beladen met St-Maarten van goud.
  • (1838) Een hemelsblaeuw veld met eenen gouden Sint-Martinus.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on October 13, 1819 and confirmed on August 20, 1838.

The arms simply show the patron saint, Saint Martin of Tours, who also appeared on the local seal.

The colours are the Dutch national colours, as in 1813 the mayor applied without indicating the colours. The arms were thus granted in the national colours. When the arms were confirmed after the Belgian independence, the colours were not changed.
