Arms of Östra Göinge

Official blazon

Sköld delad av silver, vari två korslagda, gröna palmkvistar, och av grönt, vari två korslagda hackor av silver.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted in 1975.

The twig of palm tree is a symbol for peace, and two crossed palm tree twigs can be found in a seal for Eastern Göinge in the time after Skåne became Swedish. In the former arms of Glimåkra there was among other charges a pickaxe, and this is the origin of the two pickaxes in the lower field of the arms.
