The arms were granted to the province in 1567 (to replace arms from 1560 which had a wolverine in them). The eagle was for a long time black on gold, but at the revised grant on 19 June 1936, the original colours were retaken.
The following communes are in this county (lan). The codes following the name are assigned by Sweden for statistical purposes.
