The coat of arms is "Vert two bars argent with lines of partition each forming three dendritic protrusions".
This kind of design that was invented in the Nordic modern heraldry (Finland!) but apparently well received in many other places, seems to be difficult to blazon using the classical English terminology. The arms musr be canting, drenje meaning "a bush" or "a grove of throny bushes". The 12 trees formed in the coat of arms represent the 12 villages that the municipality encompasses.
