Oskarshamn kommunvapen

Official blazon

Sköld fyrstyckad: 1. i blått fält hans Maj:t Konung Oskar I:s monogram av guld; 2. i fält av guld ett blått ankare; 3. i fält av guld en blå merkuriestav; 4. i blått fält ett ymnighetshorn av guld.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted in 1942 and officially registered in 1974.

Oskarshamn has its name after King Oscar I, and therefore the first field in the arms displays the monogram of Oscar I. In the other fields there are symbols for shipping (the anchor), trade (the staff of Mercury) and wealth (the cornucopia). Oskarshamn was a town, and therefore entitled to use the mural crown on its arms.
