Arms of Nordland

Official blazon

På gull bunn en svart båt med mast og råseil.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on January 15, 1965.

The arms show a typical local type of boat, the Nordlandsbåt. This boat was widely used for fishing in the region in old times, now they are still used for recreation. The black colour symbolises the tar that was used on the boats. The golden field refers to the sun.
