En sølv isbjørn på rød bunn.
The arms were granted on December 16, 1938.
The arms were devised for the 150th anniversary of the city in 1939. The polar bear was chosen as a symbol for the fishing in the polar seas north of Norway. The polar bear itself is not native to Norway itself.
The arms by Ströhl in 1905.
