Blazon: På blå grunn to gull ringar, 1-1. In English: Azure two bracelets or.
Approved by the royal resolution of 22 May 1987 after a drawing by Jarle Skuseth. [c2j88]
The municipal web site explains that the arms show bracelets (wrist rings) found in the church yard in Aukra in 1936, originating from the Bronze Age ca. 1000 BC. There are no other such pairs found in Norway and only one somewhat similar in South Sweden. The rings are 8 cm in diameter made of gold 65 grams each. It is said that they represent cooperation, loyalty and love. The design is also said to represent sunset over ocean. It is also said that the two rings represent the Julsund strait and the Gossen island, after the original explanation by Knut Rød., who proposed the design idea in the first place. The original design included a single ring, but it was increased to two after the requirement from the State archives.
