The arms were granted on June 19, 1987.
The arms show a holly branch, a common tree in the area.

The chevron in the arms is derived from the arms of the Smør family, who used a chevron in their arms. The family was an important noble family in the 14th and 15th century in Norway. They originated from the area. The flame symbolises the old industries in the village.
