Coat of Arms

[Flag of Gratangen] image by Tomislav Šipek, 13 November 2015

Blazon: I blått en innbøyd sølv sparre. In English: Azure a chevron embowed argent.
Approved by the crown prince-regent's resolution of 15 June 1990.
The municipal web site explains it to stand for "mountain top and wave crest". The blue symbolizes the sky and the sea, the silver the snow-covered mountain tops, especially that of the Sølvfjell mountain as well as the silver crests of sea waves.
