Coat of Arms

[COA of Jølster]
image by Tomislav Šipek, 27 January 2016

Blazon: På raud grunn ein gull liljekross. In English: Gules a cross fluery or.
Approved by the royal resolution of 22 July 1983 after a drawing by Elsa Norunn Håheim Nydal after a proposal by Magnus Hardeland. [c2j87]
The arms are loosly inspired by the arms of Audun Hugleiksson from Hegranes in Jølster, who died in 1302, an important figure in Norwegian politics of the period. In his seals he used a shield with a rose, surrounded with a double tressure fleury-counterfloury. The tressure was a grant from the Scottish king. His seal shows him as a rider holding a shield with his arms, e.g. on a 1295 treaty he arranged between Norwaqy and France, as an emmisary there. The lesser seal, on the reverse, shows only the shield of the arms. Artefact from his castly have fleury ironcast ornaments that provided a further idea on adopting the municipal arms of this form.
