Coat of arms (crest) of Skive


The arms were officially registered in 1977 and again on December 10, 2007.

The arms are based on the oldest seal of the city, dating from 1579, and show the bridge over the Skive Å. The fish indicates the importance of fisheries for the city. The historical seals and arms always showed the fish facing left, only in 1977 this was changed by showing the fish facing right.
