The arms were granted on August 9, 1820 and again on August 9, 1820.
The arms were probably devised in the early 19th century and are canting for the French name of the town, Tourneppe (Tour=tower). There are only two seals known of the local council. One from 1655, showing the arms of Witthem van Beersel, Lord of Dworp at the time. A later seal, dating from 1703 shows a shield with a single chevron.
The arms in the Koffie Hag/Café Hag albums +/- 1930
Literature: Servais, 1955; Vastiau, 2009
