Approved by the royal resolution of 18 June 1982 after a drawing by Bjørn Linnestad. [c2j87]
The three crosses symbolise the three parishes in the municipality: Vestby, Garder and Såner. (When the arms were adopted, that is. Today there are four - Hvitsten was established in 1998.
They also represent the three natural harbours in the area: Emmestad, Kjøvangen and Sonskilen. The bottony crosses are reminiscent to the design in the arms of the Norwegian Church.
