Arms (crest) of Höör

Official blazon

I rött fält en kvarnsten av silver och däröver en ginstam av silver belagd med tre röda lågor.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted in 1949 and confirmed in 1974 and show three flames and a millstone. In former times millstones were made in the municipality, it being the main industry at the time. The flames are a canting symbol, the name being derived from harg, or place of offerings.

In 1949 a proposal for arms was submitted to the Institute of Heraldry. The proposal showed in a chief three millstones. The main field was divided with a St. Andrews cross, red and silver. The upper silver part showed a hill with an altar with fire. The lower silver quarter showed a military cross and a rectangle with a bend. The meaning of the latter two I don't know.
