Official blason
I sköld av silver över en av en vågskura bildad blå stam tre bjälkvis ställda genom svarta strängar förenade svarta rundlar, var och en ovan och nedan genom svarta strängar förenad med en röd rundel.

The arms were officially registered on March 4, 1977.

The arms show in the upper half a propylene molecule, which is used as a symbol for the local petrochemical industry. The blue base indicates that the municipality borders the sea.
