The arms were granted on November 20, 1987.
The arms show two log-driving hooks. The municipality of Nordre Land has rich traditions within the field of log driving, which the vast number of log dams within the area bare witness to. Tools were required for the log driving, and the local blacksmiths made pike poles. Every blacksmith created his own shape or design for the poles, and one of the most famous pike poles in Nordre Land were the ones made by the blacksmith Kristian Halden. It is the "Halden Pole" which has been the model for the municipal arms of Nordre Land
Heraldry of the World is a private site and maintained as a hobby, which takes a lot of time and effort (and costs).
