Arms (crest) of Höör

Official blazon

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


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.
