Arms of Skagen

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted in 1938.

The arms show a grill and a fish. The grill is the symbol of St. Lawrence, the patron saint of the first church in Skagen. The grill also appears on the oldest seals, known since 1535.

The city's main source of income is fisheries, but the fish was added later.
