Coat of Arms

[COA of Alstahaug] image by Tomislav Šipek, 29 December 2015

Blazon: I sølv en blå bjelke dannet ved taggesnitt. In English: Argent a fess engrailed azure.
Approved by the royal resolution of 8 August 1986 after a drawing by Jarle E. Henriksen. [c2j87]
The Wikipšedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alstahaug quotes from http://www.ngw.nl/heraldrywiki/index.php?title=Alstahaug, providing a bit nicer sentence:
"The arms show the Seven Sisters (Norwegian: De syv søstre), a row of mountains in the area, mirrored in the clear waters of the fjord."
