The arms were granted on August 21, 1871 and new arms on December 3, 1984.

The new arms are a combination of the old arms of Herk, and the arms of Schulen.

The old arms show in the base the arms of the County Loon. Herk belonged from the 13th century until the late 18th century to Loon. The oldest seal of the town dates from 1307 and already shows only the arms of Loon. Only in 1871 the upper part, showing St. Martin, the local patron saint, was added.
