I fält av silver att avslitet blått griphuvud mellan tre blå kryckkors, ordnade två och ett.
The arms were officially granted on October 12, 1951.
The griffin's (or eagle's) head is taken from a stone in the local church, probably dating from the 10th century and symbolises the long habitation of the area. The cross, also taken from a stone in the church, symbolises the time after Christianity was introduced in the region. The three crosses also refer to the three parts of the former municipality and parish.
