Wapen van Betekom/Arms (crest) of Betekom

Official blazon

Van zilver met een leliebloem van sabel - het schild geplaatst vóór een Heilige Laurentius, rechtstaand, met nimbus, houdend een rooster in de rechterhand, alles van goud.


The arms were officially granted on June 16, 1967.

The arms show a black fleur-de-lys, which is taken from the arms of the city of Aarschot. Betekom was until 1793 part of the Rivieren estate, which was a possession of the city of Aarschot for many centuries. The fleur-de-lys was also used on the local seals known from the late 17th and the 18th century. The supporter is St. Lawrence, patron saint of the village.
