Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on June 10, 1969.

The arms are those of the Lords of Wittem, who owned the village in the 18th century. The escutcheon show three lions, derived from the arms of the Halewijn family. In 1491 Filips van Wittem married Anna van Halewijn. He and some of his descendants used the Halewijn arms as an inescutcheon on the Wittem arms (see also Beersel).
