TÓRSHAVN

Arms of Tórshavn

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms have first been used in the 1920s, and have never been officially granted. The arms show the hand with a hammer, symbolising the Germanic God Thor, after which the town is named.

The waves are canting for the second part of the name, which means harbour.
