Coat of Arms

[COA of Øystre Slidre] image by Tomislav Šipek, 25 November 2015

Blazon: Dekt av blå og sølv skjell. In English: Plumetty azure and argent.
Approved by the royal resolution of 20 January 1989

The design depicts roof tiles or slates. From http://www.ngw.nl/heraldrywiki/index.php?title=%C3%98ystre%20Slidre This recognizes that the slate industry was a formerly important industry in the area. Slate roofing was very common in the village of Valdres.
