Coat of Arms

[COA of Agdenes]image by Tomislav Šipek, 05 November 2015

The original Norwegian blazon as appearing in the royal resolution: I hermelin et rødt skjoldhode.
The municipal site also includes an explanation further then the fur production. The hermelin is linked to kings, who were linked with Agdenes. The red chief is said to represent strawberries (still an important industry of Agdenes), while other interpret it as the blood from the axe of Eric Bloodaxe (i.e. 10th century king Eric Haraldsson)
