The arms were granted on June 16, 1967.
Porsanger is one of the largest municipalities in the North of Norway that are not dependent on fishing. Instead the local people historically farmed reindeer, which is still an importance source of income. The arms thus show three reindeer.
Heraldry of the World is a private site and maintained as a hobby, which takes a lot of time and effort (and costs).
