Arms of Strand

Official blazon

På sølv bunn tre røde vasshjul, to over ett.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on May 25, 1973.

The wheels are a symbol for the hydro power, which has been of importance to the municipality, first (since 1850) by using water mills, and now using modern hydro-electric plants.
