Province : Hordaland
Additions : 1964 Hålandsdal, Strandvik

Arms (crest) of Fusa

Official blazon

På sølv grunn tre blå spiralar stilte i trepass.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on September 27, 1991.

The arms show three spirals, which symbolise the strong currents in the water. The name Fusa may have been derived from the old verb fusa, which had some meaning with running water. The spirals also symbolise the many potholes or giant's kettles ('jettegryte') in the municipality, which were created by the water in the rocks.
