Gules, a griffin Or. A griffin is a monster with lion's back, and eagle's wings, head and claws. It is one of the oldest heraldic symbols, and it can be found even in old Egyptian art.

The flag of Troms was adopted in 1960, the design being based on the seals of a prominent Medieval family - often referred to as the Bjarkoy family. Their seal featured a griffin (with some variations in additional elements). The earliest known impression of the seal serving as the basis for the modern arms and flag of Troms dates from 1303. This seal belonged to Bjarne Erlingsson and had the griffin surrounded by a border containing roses. However, the same man had previously used a seal showing a griffin grasping a bird. This seal is known from an impression dated 1288.
