The municipality of Furesø (40,325 inhabitants in 2016; 5,681 ha) was
established on 1 January 2007 as the merger of the former municipalities of
Farum (18,662 inh. in 2005) and Værløse (18,649 inh. in 2005). The
municipality's namesake is Lake Furesø (941 ha; 37.7 m in depth, therefore the
deepest Danish lake).
The coat of arms features a stylized bird flying over stylized waves. This is a direct reference to the poem "Flyv, fugl! Flyv over Furesøens vove!" (Fly bird! Fly over Lake Fure's waves). Better known as "Flyv, fugl! Flyv", the poem published in 1828 by the romantic poet Christian Winther (1796-1876) and made a song in 1838 by John Peter Emilius Hartmann (1805-1900).
The blue shade is prescribed as:
