Coat of Arms

[COA of Aurland]image by Tomislav Šipek, 13 December 2015

Blazon: På blå grunn eit avrive sølv geitebukkhovud. In English: Azure a goat buck's head erased argnet.
Approved by the royal resolution of 22 May 1987 after a drawing by Inge Rotevatn.
From http://www.ngw.nl/heraldrywiki/index.php?title=Aurland:
"The area is well known for its goat cheeses and goat farming. A goat was thus considered an appropriate symbol for the municipality."
