Wapen van Tessenderlo/Coat of arms (crest) of Tessenderlo

Official blazon

  • (1858) D'azur à un St. Martin à cheval, coupant, avec son épée, son manteau, dont il donne la moitié à un pauvre boiteux, le tout d'or.
  • (1994) In lazuur een Sint-Maarten met een kreupele bedelaar geplaatst op een grond, het geheel van goud.


The arms were officially granted on July 23, 1858 and again on February 9, 1994.

The arms are based on the old seals of the village, known since the 15th century. All seals show the local patron saint, St. Martin of Tours.

The arms were not changed in 1994, only the description was modernised.
