Wapen van Varendonk

Official blazon

  • (1819) Van lazuur beladen met een varenstronk van goud.
  • (1843) Een blau wveld met een gulden varenkruyd

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on October 6, 1819 and confirmed in 1843.

The arms are canting, showing a fern tree (Varen in Dutch). As the municipality did not indicate colours when applying for the arms, the Dutch Hoge Raad vab Adel granted the arms in the Dutch national colours. After the Belgian independence, the arms were confirmed in 1843, but the colours were not changed.
