The arms were granted on March 15, 1902.
The arms show a cogwheel and lightning in the upper half and a waterfall (foss) with timber in the lower half. Both symbolise the industries around which the town developed.
Heraldry of the World is a private site and maintained as a hobby, which takes a lot of time and effort (and costs).
