Wapen van Beringen (Limburg)/Arms (crest) of Beringen (Limburg)

Official blazon

  • (1981) Gedeeld 1. gedwarsbalkt van tien stukken van goud en van keel, 2. in zilver een rechtopstaande beer van natuurlijke kleur met een neusring van sabel.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on May 30, 1853 and again on February 11, 1981.

The arms show the barred shield of the Counts of Loon, and a canting bear (Beer). The oldest, 14th century, seals show a bear chained to a pole and a small shield of Loon. Later seals showed arms with a bear and a free quarter with the Loon arms. The present arms appear in the 15th century.
