Coat of Arms

[COA of Stor-Elvdal]image by Tomislav Šipek, 02 December 2015

Blazon: I grønt to skråstilte sølv tømmersager. In English: Vert two wood saws palewise.
Approved by the royal resolution of 12 February 1988 after a drawing by Even Jarl Skoglund. [c2j88]
According to http://www.ngw.nl/heraldrywiki/index.php?title=Stor-Elvdal:
"The arms show two saws as a symbol of the importance of forestry in the municipality."
Željko Heimer, 05 December 2015

Not quite. "skrå" is something like "at an angle". So I guess the saws are per bend.
Peter Hans van den Muijzenberg, 06 December 2015

You are quite right - I was writing too quick - the word I wanted to write there was "bendwise" (the saws are "in pale", one above the other, but since that is default of two charges it is not mentioned explicitly)
