Arms (crest) of Diocese of Luleå

Official blazon

I fält av silver ett blått kors, is första vinkeln åtföljd av två korslagda blå nycklar, den vänstra störtad.


The Coat of Arms was created by the State Archives in 1966 and based on the diocesean Seal and the Coat of Arms of the City of Luleå both which has the Keys of St Peter. The Tinctures are also those of the City. The Cross alludes to the Arms of the Archdiocese of Uppsala, to which the Area once belonged.
