Coat of Arms

[COA of Rollag]image by Tomislav Šipek, 30 October 2015

Blazon: I rødt to gull spisser som møtes i øvre skjoldrand. English: Gules two piles in point issuing from the base or.
It was approved by the royal resolution of 25 June 1993.
From http://www.ngw.nl/heraldrywiki/index.php?title=Rollag  "The arms represent an old warning cairn made of timber." This site in Norwegian explains that the design represent a stylized "varde" - a  beacon set atop of a hill used for signaling (i.e. as a distress call).
Now, there are still old cairns on the hills around Rollag, but it seems that the background story is so well known that I can't find it in a quick search.
