Arms of Ålborg Amt

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were designed in 1960.

The bull is a symbol for the old Germanin tribes that lived in the Himmerland area, the Cimbri. They worshipped the bull as a god of fertility. The area now was part of the Amt and in the city of Ålborg there is a statue of a bull based on the same history.

Literature : Achen, 1982
