The Flag

The coat of arms and flag were adopted by the municipal council on 29. October 1986. They were based on an idea by Ketil Gylland from Fillan and drawn by the designer Einar Skjervold from Trondheim who has also design several other municipal arms and flags. Hitra has a population of red deer, said to be the largest in Northern Europe. The arms and flag were approved by Royal Resolution dated 7. August 1987, in which the arms were blazoned as "I blått et sølv hjortehode", meaning "Azure a stag's head argent", and the flag was defined as "I blått et hvitt hjortehode", meaning "Azure a stag's head white". The blue to be used is a regular heraldic blue.
