Official blazon

  • (1981) Gedeeld 1. gedwarsbalkt van tien stukken van goud en van keel, 2. in zilver een rechtopstaande beer van natuurlijke kleur met een neusring van sabel.


The arms were officially granted on May 30, 1853 and again on February 11, 1981.

The arms show the barred shield of the Counts of Loon, and a canting bear (Beer). The oldest, 14th century, seals show a bear chained to a pole and a small shield of Loon. Later seals showed arms with a bear and a free quarter with the Loon arms. The present arms appear in the 15th century.
