Coat of Arms

[COA of Meløy] image by Tomislav Šipek, 25 January 2016

Blazon: I rødt en femsløyfet gull valknute. In English: Gules a five-looped knot or.
Approved by the royal resolution of 11 May 984 after a drawing by Øysten H. Skaugvolldal. [c2j87]
A similar design with four loops is known in the English heraldry as Bowen knot, after the Bowen family that used it in its arms. Otherwise it is known as "heraldic knot" and "true lover's knot" (although both names are ambiguous). The description "five-looped knot" seems like quite understandable, nevertheless.
The design was chosen since the municipality is a crossing point among five regions - Ofoten, Sor-Troms, Veseraalen, Lofoten and Salten, while the opening between loops stand for five fjords: Tjeldsund, Ofotfjord, Tysfjord, Vestfjord and Gullesfjord.
The "valknut" is a name of symbol named in the sagas, variously depicted - most often as knot of three interlaced triangles. It was connected with warrior spirits and stand for loyalty, love and concord.
