Province : Stadsgewest Brussel / Région Bruxelles

Wapen van Elsene /Blason d'Ixelles
Official blazon
Dutch In zilver een els van natuurlijke kleur
French D'argent à un aune au naturel
English Argent, an alder tree proper


The arms were granted on February 17, 1888.

The arms show a canting alder tree (Els in Dutch). Elsene became a separate council only in 1813, thus no historical arms or seals existed, hence the choice for a canting element.
