Three legendary words there will never be forgotten in the town of Grimbergen: Ardet Nec Consumitur. It is the motto of the Abbey and holds the meaning "Burned, but not destroyed" (different translations can occur).

The motto references the fact that the Grimbergen Abbey has been burnt to the ground three times, but rebuilt every time by the Fathers and the community. A testament to the resilient spirit of the Fathers of Grimbergen.
