County: Ida-Virumaa

Arms of Narva

Official blazon

Sinisel kilbil hõbedased kaks kohakuti vastassuundades kala ja kaks mõõka ja kolm sõõri.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on July 24, 1992, but date from 1937.

The two fish refer to the importance of Narva as a fishing harbour. The three cannon balls symbolise that the city has been an important border town during its history. Narva was a longtime Swedish town on the border with Russia (now the Estonian-Russian border).

The sword and scimitar are based on the arms of Karelia and date from the Swedish time (compare also the arms of Finland.
