Coat of arms (crest) of Nexø


The arms are based on the oldest seal of the city, which is known from 1584, but is possibly older. The unidentified symbol is officially described as a boat-hook. The town has an important harbour and fisheries and sailing have been of great importance.

After the merger with Svaneke in 1970 the new municipality uses a logo based on the two arms of Nexø and Svaneke next to each other.
