- (1818) Van keel beladen met een koornschoof van goud geboden van zilver.

The arms were granted on August 4, 1818 and were confirmed on July 21, 1843.
The arms show a garb, most likely a symbol for agriculture.
The old seals of the local council, dating from the 15th and 16th century, showed a tree, with on the sides two small shields, one with the lion of Vlaanderen, the other with the arms of Burgundy. Why the council in the early 19th century applied for the garb instead is not known.
The arms in the Koffie Hag/Café Hag albums +/- 1930
Literature: Servais, 1955
