Incorporated into : 2009 Kujalleq
The arms were granted in 1971.
The Greenlandic name of the town means "the white", thus the background colour of the arms. Through the town runs a small river from the lake Tasersuaq, which is the source of the drinking water for the town. The river is symbolised running through the white field. The Danish name for the town is derived from Queen Julianne Marie, thus a crown was added. The town is a major port and trading center, which is symbolised by the anchor and balance.
