Arms of Ås

Official blazon

I rødt tre sølv spisruter, to over en.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on July 23, 1982.

The three diamonds are a symbol for the many archaeological findings in the area. The diamond shape was taken as it resembled many of the axes found in the area. The silver colour resembles the flint, of which the tools were made of. The number of three diamonds was chosen to represent the three parishes in the municipality.
