Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on July 11, 1911.

The arms are based on the oldest known seal of the village and parish, dating from 1660. The meaning is not known.

It has been stated that the inescutcheon is derived from the arms of the Counts of Sint-Omer, who used a golden bar in blue. They became Lords of Reninge in the late 13th century. The ermine may be derived from the arms of the Lords of Stavele, who acquired the village of reninge in 1470.
