Official blason
I sköld, medelst vågskuror fyrstyckad av blått och silver, ett svävande utböjt kors av motsatta tinkturer.

The arms were officially granted on ??-??-1963 and registered in 1974.

The arms are based on a local seal from 1578. The arms probably indicate the two lakes in the municipality and the small connection between them. The meaning of the cross is not known.

Literature : Nevéus and de Waern, 1992
