Wapen van Oostmalle

Official blazon

  • (1819) Van lazuur beladen met St. Laurentius van goud.
  • (1839) Een blauw veld met het beeld van St-Laurentius van naer het leven.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on October 6, 1819 and confirmed on January 31, 1839.

The arms show St. Lawrence, patron saint of the village with the grill. The saint also appeared on the older seals of the local council.

In 1819 the arms were granted in the Dutch national colours, as the mayor did not specify the colour of the arms. This was changed after the Belgian independence in 1839. At the same time the saint was shown in a much better way.
