This photo is taken by Eldar Tandstad at "Sandvika" Flem, Haram community a few weeks ago, and shows the beauty at Skule Island and the north western part of Norway with the waves rolling against the shore in stormy weather.
In 1987 by Royal Resolution the Government in Norway decided that Haram´s Coat of Arms should be: "Shared by silver and blue with the reverse arc cut by three arches."
Eldar Tandstad, from Sykkylven is responsible for the design and layout of Haram´s Cote of Arms. Tandstad´s design "Wave II" was chosen out of several proposals in a competition announced in 1984.
It was the first time Tandstad designed a Coat of Arms, and, according to himself, also the last time. - The requirements and the rules of heraldic design is so strict, that I do not think I will try me on this several times, he says. The Layout of this Cote of Arms is unique in many ways. The designer says that the wave motif that is chosen, can be a symbol of the sea that connects parts of the county together. The motif can also be related to the obstacles that often must be overcome to promote growth and prosperity in a divided peripheral comunity. (make your own reference to the photo above)
