Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on September 7, 1984.

The arms show 5 oak leaves, one for each of the villages in the municipality : Tingvoll, Straumsnes, Gyl, Torhjulvågen and Meisingset. The oak leaves are chosen as a symbol for the municipality as Norway's northernmost oak forests can be found in the municipality.
