Arms (crest) of Barkåkra

Official blazon

Sköld vågskurestyckad av rött och guld, vari ett rött ankare, upptill bildande ett patriarkalkors med spetsiga ändar.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on December 13, 1963.

The division and the arms symbolise that the village is a coastal village with an important harbour. The anchor symbolises the harbour, but the upper part shows a double cross. This is the symbol of the tuberculosis association, and symbolises the local sanatorium.
