Arms (crest) of Herrestad

Official blason
I blått fält en fyrkantsharv med två vertikala och tre horisontella stockar, de senare med vardera fyra pinnar, samt däröver en krona, allt av guld.


The arms were adopted in 1958, but never officially granted.

The arms are based on the seal of the area from 1524 and show a canting harrow (herv, from the older name Hervestad), which is also a symbol for the agricultural character of the municipality. The origin of the crown is not known.
