Coat of Arms

Blazon: I grønt et gull hjortehode, sett forfra. In English: Vert a deer head caboshed or.
Approved by the royal resolution of 4 November 1983 after a drawing by Jarle Skuseth, redrawing the original idea by Birger A. Eikrem. [c2j87]
The symbolic is explained so that green represent the agriculture and the deer stands for large deer herds in the municipality. The 12 points in the antlers stand for the 12 electoral districts in the municipality. [c2j87] also notes a 14th century seal of one Bjørn Steineson from Voss showing similar design (with a mullet in the chief between the antlers).
There is a number of similar design in use all around Europe. One that comes to mind is Garešnica in Croatia.
