Arms of Lom

Official blazon

På blå grunn tre sølv skjeltrekor.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on February 6, 1987.

The arms show three spades used to scoop water from the irrigation channels typical for the area. The area is one of the driest in Norway, but the soil is good for agriculture. It thus needs irrigation. In the 17th century a system was developed in which melting water from the mountains was transported to the area using wooden channels or aquaducts. The water was further divided using irrigation channels.
