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

Official blazon

Gevierendeeld : 1 en 4 van zilver met drie fazen van keel; 2 en 3 van zilver met drie disselbijlen van keel, de twe ein het schildhoofd ruggelings afgewend, het schild getopt met een kroon met vijf fleurons van elkaar gescheiden door een parel.


The arms were granted on October 15, 1951.

The arms show the arms of the Barons of Croy-Renty, that can also be found in many other Belgian arms. The Estate of Malderen became a possession of the Baron of Fay in 1662, whose daughter married François-Albert de Croy. Their daughter married Henri von Wild und Rheingrave, Count of Salm-Kyrbourg. The Estate remained in the Salm family until 1792.

The only known seal of Malderen dates from 1748 and shows two shields. The first shows the arms of the Croy-Renty family, the second the arms of Wild und Rheingrave. The municipality, however, adopted only the first arms as the municipal arms in 1951.

Literature: Servais, 1955
