In succession of Antje Jackelén who has been made Archbishop of Uppsala. Johan Tyrberg was on Saturday 30 August installed as Bishop of Lund.

From the official site of the Diocese of Lund His Armorial Bearings:

In first and second quarters the diocesean Arms and in the others the personal Arms of Bishop Tyrberg. The Wave and Anchor symbolises the Bishop's intrest in Sailing and Seafaring. The Anchor also symbolises Hope. The Ship's Lantern symbolises the Light of the Life and the World that is Jesus Christ and his disciples across all time. The Motto translates as "Salt of the Earth". Arms are composed by Claus Berntsen of the Swedish Heraldry Society and painted by the Royal Danish Arms Painter Ronny Andersen.
