Coat of Arms

[COA of Enebakk] image by Tomislav Šipek, 09 November 2015

Blazon: I grønt fire sølv firblad, 1-2-1. In English: Vert four quatrefoils argent in cross.
Approved by the royal resolution fo 12 December 1986, redrawn by Truls Nygaard after the idea by Anne-Lise Knoff.
The [c2j87] recounts the origin of quatrefoils are the frescoes from the Enebakk church from 17th century, although those in the arms are more heraldically dpeicted. Four of them were chosen to represent the ancient four quarter of the town, confirmed in sources in around year 1400, but probably even older, retained in the names until present days.
According to the flowers represented are of the species Paris Quadrifolia (English name seems to be herb paris or true lover’s knot), usual in the region. Also, the old quarters are now only three in the municipality: Flateby, Kirkebygda and Ytre Enebakk. The fourth, Dalefjerdingen is since 2005 part of Kirkebygda.
