Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on June 8, 1883 and reconfirmed in 1968.

The oldest known arms for Ronneby date from 1542 and show the letter R between a star and a crescent. Similar arms were used in the 17th and 18th century. In 1882 the city applied for proper arms, and the image of the old arms was slightly changed. The letter R was replaced by the Ronnebyå river.
