- (1819) Van lazuur beladen met den aartsengel Michael van goud.
- (1913) Een Sint-Michael den draak verpletterend, alles van goud, in een blauw veld.
The arms were officially granted on October 6, 1819 and again on July 30, 1913.
The arms show St. Michael, patron saint of the village and former estate. The seals from the (large) estate of Weelde from 1602-1668 all showed St. Michael and the dragon.
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.
The 1819 grant did not show the saint as an angel, which was corrected in 1913.
