Coat of Arms

[COA of Lom] image by Tomislav Šipek, 16 December 2015

Blazon: På blå grunn tre sølv skjeltrekor. In English: Azure three showels argent (palewise in fess).
Approved by the royal resolution of 6 February 1987 after a drawing by Einar H. Skjervold. [c2j87]
From http://www.ngw.nl/heraldrywiki/index.php?title=Lom:
"The arms show three spades used to scoop water from the irrigation channels typical for the area. The area is one of the driest in Norway, but the  soil is good for agriculture. It thus needs irrigation. In the 17th century a system was developed in which melting water from the mountains was transported to the area using wooden channels or aqueducts.  The water was further divided using irrigation channels."
