Coat of arms of Vega

Vega coat of armsThe coat-of-arms of Norwegian municipalities are from modern times. The coat of arms of Vega was approved by the Cabinet 20 November 1987. It shows a gold-coloured bailer for a boat on a red background.

A bailer was the essential tool in a boat and important to the municipality due to its dependence on the sea. An earlier suggestion for the Vega coat-of-arms picturing the black silhouette of a sailing boat on a yellow background is now used as the coat-of-arms of Nordland county.

The design of the municipality's coat of arms was made by the local painter ToreEngen in 1987.Pins with the municipal coat-of-arms can be purchased for NOK 50,- at the reception desk in the community hall.
