The arms were granted on February 1, 1937.
The arms are derived from the arms of the family Aspremont-Lijnden. Rekem was a free estate, later a barony and finally a county, directly governed by the Holy Roman Empire, but held in loan by different vassals. The oldest known Lord of Reken was mentioned in the 12th century. Many different families ruled the estate, which became a possession of Herman van Aspremont-Lijnden in 1590. Later, Ernst van Lijnden became the first Count of Rekem.
The cross is the cross of the Van Lijnden family (see Lienden), the lion is derived from the arms of Aspremont.
The arms in the Koffie Hag/Café Hag albums +/- 1930
