Arms (crest) of Herrestad

Official blason
I blått fält en fyrkantsharv med två vertikala och tre horisontella stockar, de senare med vardera fyra pinnar, samt däröver en krona, allt av guld. |- |English | blazon wanted |}

Origin/meaning

The arms were adopted in 1958, but never officially granted.

The arms are based on the seal of the area from 1524 and show a canting harrow (herv, from the older name Hervestad), which is also a symbol for the agricultural character of the municipality. The origin of the crown is not known.
