Arms of Lillesand

I blått tre sølv ankere forent i trepass


The arms were officially granted on September 11, 1987.

The arms symbolise the merger of the three former municipalities, as well as the strong ties to the sea.

The previous arms were adopted on December 15, 1954.


The arms show an Arctic Tern and an anchor. Both symbols refer to the long coastline of the municipality and the importance of fishing and shipping for the local economy.

Heraldry of the World is a private site and maintained as a hobby, which takes a lot of time and effort (and costs).
