Arms of Nærøy

Official blazon

I gull tre røde liljetopper forent i trepass.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on May 22, 1987.

The arms are based on the seal of King Håkon Magnusson from 1344, on a document in which the King granted several rights to the local farmers. The seal shows the St. Mary in a portal decorated with fleur-de-lis, the symbol of the St. Mary. The arms show a combination of three fleur-de-lis, the colour was chosen as red, as the local water lilies generally have a red colour.
