Blazon: På blå grunn tre sølv ljåblad, 1-1-1. In English: Azure three scythe blades fesswise in pale.
Approved by the royal resolution of 7 August 1987., after a drawing by Petter Eide. [c2j88]
According to the municipal web site the reason for the choice of scythe blades is because the municipality had a large numbers of smith and their scythe production was well known in wider region. It is said that there was not unusual that there was some 200 smiths in the municipality. A concurrent proposal for the municipal symbol were three fiddles on green, for the strong fiddle production, but this was chosen eventually.
