SORTLAND

Province : Nordland

Arms of Sortland

Official blazon

I blått en gull borg med tre tårn uten krenelering.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on March 15, 1985.

The arms show a gate, as Sortland was the gate to the Vesterålen district with its many lakes. The arms were based on the seal used by the municipality since the 1960s, which also showed a (natural) gate in a landscape. The blue colour symbolises the blue sea.
