Wapen van Wechelderzande

Official blazon

  • (1819) Van lazuur beladen met eene vrouw, staande op een visch en hebbende in deszelfs regter hand een paternoster alles van goud.
  • (1841) Een blauw veld met het gulden beeld van H. Amelberga.


The arms were officially granted on October 6, 1819 and again on November 8, 1841.

The arms show the local patron saint, St. Amalbergis.

The colours are the Dutch national colours, as in 1813 the mayor applied without indicating the colours. The arms were thus granted in the national colours. When the arms were confirmed after the Belgian independence, the colours were not changed.
