Arms of Nesseby

Official blazon

I rødt en opprett gull molteplante.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on June 27, 1986.

The arms show a cloudberry, as these plants are commonly found in the municipality, and the largest numbers in the whole of Norway are found here. The berries were historically even exported to other parts of Norway by the barrel.
