Additions : 1961 Frol, Skogn, Åsen, 1965 Ytterøy

Arms of Levanger

Official blazon

På rød bunn en stående gull hest.


The arms were granted on November 25, 1960, March 16, 1962 and again on March 26, 1965.

The horse is a symbol for the town as a major trading centre between Sweden and Norway for many centuries. The arms did not change, but were re-granted after the addition of the other municipalities (that used no arms).
