Origin/meaning

The arms were granted July 18, 1980.

The Fron area has a longstanding tradition in horse breeding and is one of the main centres of horse breeding in Norway. In the beginning of the century the Fron municipality used unofficial arms with a poorly designed horse. When Fron was divided in Nord- and Sør-Fron, Nord-Fron choose the above arms.
