|Dutch||Van lazuur, beladen met het borstbeeld van St. Eloi van goud.|
The arms were officially granted on August 4, 1818.
The arms show the local patron saint, Saint Eloi.
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
