Arms of Lenvik

Official blazon

I blått tre skråstilte gull årer med bladene opp.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on August 22, 1986.

The arms show three oars and are a symbol for the fishing and sailing in the municipality. To distinguish the arms from those from many other fishing towns, the oar was chosen as a symbol.
