Arms (crest) of Hjørring


The arms show St. Catherine, the patron saint of the city. The saint first appears in a seal known since 1469, but the style indicates an early 14th century origin. The present arms are based on a second seal from the 16th century. The arms above have been used since 1974, before the arms had a slightly different design, see below. Those arms were officially granted in 1964.
