Official blazon

  • (1877) Tiercé en pal, de sable, d'or et de gueules; à deux épées nues d'argent garnies d'or posées en sautoir, au chef de sinople, chargé de deux L adossées et surmonteés de la couronne royale aussi d'or.
  • (1989) Gedeeld in drieën van sabel, van goud en van keel, twee schuingekruiste zwaarden van zilver met gevest van goud over alles heen; schildhoofd: in sinopel twee afgewende hoofdletters L van goud, overtopt met de Belgische koningskroon.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on June 28, 1877 and again on July 20, 1989.

The village developed around an army camp founded in 1835 by King Leopold I. In 1848 the cam was abolished and the military settled in the village, which became a separate municipality in 1850.

The arms show the Belgian flag with two swords as a reminder of the army base. The chief shows the monogramme of King Leopold I.
