TORSKEN

Province : Troms

Arms of Torsken

Official blazon

I svart et gull ankerkors.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on March 23, 1990.

The arms show an anchor cross as a symbol for both Christianity and the importance of the local harbour. The economy of Torsken is largely dependent on its harbour and an anchor would be an appropriate symbol.


Literature : Norwegian Municipal Network and Norske Kommunevåpen, Kommunalforlaget, 1987.
