Ristijärvi Kuntavaakuna / Kommunvapen

Official blazon

Sinisessä kentässä aaltokuvioinen hopeatyviö ja sen yläpuolella hopeinen havuristi.


The arms were officially granted on November 23, 1959.

The arms are canting, the name means Cross-lake and the arms thus show a cross and a lake in the base. The cross is made to look like fir trees, symbolising the importance of forestry to the municipality.
