County coat of arms

County cost of arms

The symbolism in Østfold County Council’s coat of arms was chosen on the basis of the county’s name and geographical location. The upwards slanted sun motif on a red background plays on the idea of a bygone cult and is inextricably linked to the concept of a life-giving sun and the nurturing power of nature. The flame shaped beam symbolises warmth and the two pointed ones symbolise light.
