Coat of Arms

[COA of Træna] image by Tomislav Šipek, 10 December 2015

Blazon: I blått tre oppvoksende gull årer, den midterste nedsenket. In English: Azure three oars or issuant from the base the central one abased.
Approved by the royal resolution of 3 July 1987 after a drawing by Jarle E. Henriksen. [c2j88]
The local history web site explains the origin of the municipal name from Norse "her" meaning military meeting place, i.e. the place where fleet gathers. Thus the arms are canting.
