|Dutch||Van lazuur,beladen met een bijenkorf en in de linkerbovenhoek met eene bij, alles van goud.|
The arms were officially granted on August 4, 1818.
The meaning of these arms is not known, probably the beehive indicates the importance of beekeeping or it is a symbol of labour.
The colours are the Dutch national colours, as in 1813 the mayor applied without indicating the colours. The arms were thus granted in the national colours. When the arms were confirmed after the Belgian independence, the colours were not changed.
Literature: Servais, 1955
