Arms (crest) of Aalborg

Origin/meaning

The arms were registered in 1938.

The arms are based on the old seal of the city, which is known from 1358, but dates from around 1300. What building is shown is not known, the moon and crescent are maybe symbols for the St. Mary. The waves in the base may be canting.

Since 1999 the city uses a logo based on the arms.
