Arms of Sauda

Official blazon

I blått en verikal sølv trillingstreng med bredtannet snitt.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on May 14, 1976.

The arms show a river as a symbol for the hydro-electric power. Historically power was generated by water mills, providing a possibility for the development of an industry in the village. Presently the power is used for melting metal ore in smelters in the municipality.


Literature : Norwegian Municipal Network; Capellen, 1987
