Hopeisessa kentässä musta havupuun kanto, josta punaiset kultasydämiset liekit nousevat ylös ja sivuille.


The arms were officially granted on May 30, 1950.

The burning pine stump alludes to slash burning during the time when these areas were first cultivated.

In 1946 a first proposal for arms was made, showing a cross and a wheatear. These were not adopted.
