The arms were officially granted on March 5, 1948.

The bull is taken from the seal of the local district court from the 17th century. The three wavy bars represent the Indalsälven, Långan and Hårkan rivers in the municipality.

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