Region : Pohjois-Pohjanmaa
Former province : until 2009 Oulu

Kestilä Kuntavaakuna / Kommunvapen

Official blazon

Punaisessa kentässä ristikkäin kaksi hopeista puulusikkaa.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on July 21, 1967.

The two wooden spoons are partly canting elements. The name looks similar to Kestikievari, meaning innkeeper, or keftit, meaning party. Both thus refer to some kind of hospitality. This was combined with the tradition of wooden handicrafts in the village.
