The municipality of Vordingborg (46,187 inhabitants in 2018; 62,100 ha) was established in 2007 as the merger of the former municipalities of Langebæk, Møn, Præstø and Vordingborg.

The arms feature a flying wild goose, symbolizing an individual in a large community with opportunities to move wherever it wants - dynamics, mobility, energy and activity. The wings of the goose for a "V", for "Vordingborg". The white triangle symbolizes Møns Klint, a 6 km stretch of chalk cliffs along the eastern coast of the island of Møn, while the green triangle represents Gåsetårnet (Goose Tower), the last remaining part of the castle of Vordingborg (14th century), which included nine towers. The tower's spire is topped by a golden goose, last changed in 1871.

The blue color alludes to the municipality's coastline and waterways. Green represents the natural environment of the municipality.
