French Parti: au 1er d'or au lion morné et contourné de sable, au 2e d'azur au bélier saillant d'argent, accorné et onglé d'or; le tout sommé d'un chef d'argent chargé de cinq mouchetures d'hermine de sable.

The arms were officially adopted in 1975.

The arms are a combination of the arms of the two former territories, in which the province is situated : the Léon (lion) and the Cornouaille (sheep), the ermine chief is derived from the arms of Bretagne (Brittany).
