Arms (crest) of Frederikssund

Official blazon


The arms were officially registered on April 21, 2006.

The arms show the fjord surrounded by two country sides with a Viking who straddle the fjord.

Before the municipality used two different, historical arms, see images below.

The arms from 1870.
The arms from 1987.

The arms are used since 1870, but the falcon has a much longer history. In 1630 the mayor of nearby Slangerup introduced the ferry over the Roskilde Fjord. His name was Falch Olsen and he lived in a mansion named Falkenborg. The name was also used for the small village around it, which in 1660 became a city and the new name Frederikssund.

In 1987 the arms were simplified, the rose branches became roses, and the colours were changed.

The arms as shown in the Kaffe Hag album from the 1930s.

The arms as shown on a cigarette card from 1926
