Country : Belgium
The arms were granted on July 31, 1935 and augmented and with added supporters on February 3, 1950 and again on July 31, 1978.
The original arms from 1935 show the arms of the Jauche family as Lords of Kruishoutem. The arms were a simplification of the seal of the council from 1626 which showed the full arms used at the time. These full arms were granted in 1950 and confirmed in 1978.
The full arms are a combination of the following elements :
The first quarter shows the lion of Vlaanderen, the second the arms of the family Montmorency, the third the arms of the family Sainte Aldegon de Noircarme and the fourth the arms of the Lalaing family and finally an escutcheon with the arms of the Jauche family. These complicated arms were the arms of Philippe de Jauche, Lord of Kruishoutem in the early 17th century. He was the grandson of Josien van Vlaanderen and Jeanne de Montmorency-Croisilles and the son of Anna de Sainte Aldegon de Noircarme, which explains the arms.
Literature: Servais, 1955
