På blå grunn ein halv sølv kvinnefigur med lyfta hender.
The arms were granted on April 5, 1991.
The arms show the Irish royal daughter, Saint Sunniva, who died in the area as a martyr while trying to convert the locals to Christianity. Later a monastery was founded on the spot, which was one of the oldest religious centres in the Vestland region.
