Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on July 26, 1965.

The arms show tow fences, it has been speculated that the name comes from a word meaning a small road between two fences. The arms thus are canting. The colours are taken from the arms of the House of Oldenburg, Kings of Denmark(and Norway) in the 17th century, as until 1645 the area was part of Norway.
