Arms of Munkedal

Official blazon

I blått en gåspenna korsad med en pappersrulle, allt av silver.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on April 11, 1983.

After the merger the new municipality wanted to have a monk (Munke) in its arms, but that was not accepted. It was finally decided to use two main attributes of monks, a piece of paper and a quill in the arms. These symbols also refer to the importance of paper factories in the municipality.
