Norway : Asker municipal arms

Postby Arthur Radburn » 15 Apr 2018, 16:55

We haven't had any Norwegian heraldry on the forum for a while. Here's a topical subject : the municipality of Asker is holding a public competition to design a municipal coat of arms.

2000 entries were received, from which the judges selected the following ten finalists. Voting ends this coming Thursday, and the result is expected on Friday.

Any thoughts about these designs? Which would you vote for?

While the polled ash trees in the existing arms are (to me) unattractive, they seem to have historic and canting influences.

Having fun with submissions, my comment above should have noted my feeling that the loss of the history is sad.
