Eenrum Coat of Arms

[Eenrum Coat of Arms] by Jarig Bakker, 19 Sep 2004, after image in Koffie Hag Album
Granted 9 Jan 1913

The grill of St. Lawrence is from the arms of the former "halfambt" Hunsingo. Near the village Pieterburen was a manor "huis ten Dijke", demolished in 1904, from which the municipality derived its manorial rights. This house had a medieval tower, which was near the sea, and has been retained on the Eenrum arms.
