Arms of Nord-Trøndelag

Official blazon

På sølv bunn en utbøyd gull kors.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on March 8, 1957.

The arms symbolise the Norwegian patron saint, St. Olaf. According to the sagas about his life, he wore a golden cross on a white shield during the battle at Stiklestad where he died in the year 1030. The combination gold on silver is forbidden according to the heraldic rules since around 1150. The only exceptions to the rule are the The Kingdom of Jerusalem and the arms of the Pope.
