På raud botn ein gull trillingstreng med ormeband-skurd.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on August 9, 1957.

The local economy at the time was mainly based on (heavy) industry, which needs a lot of electricity. The zig-zag lines in the arms symbolise both the electrical power and the industries. The colours were chosen randomly.
