Arms of Örkelljunga

Official blazon

I blått fält en balkvis ställd störtad kyrkklocka av silver över en av vågskura bildad stam av silver.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted in 1974.

The arms were designed in 1973 after the merger with Fagerhult. Both former municipalities had no older arms. The arms show a church bell, which is based on a local legend. The local bell once was sunk in the lake, but could still be heard from beneath the water.
