A yellow cross the arms bent outwards on a white
field. According to Norwegian heraldic rules, yellow and white is a prohibited
combination. Exceptions are only made where medieval arms are resurrected. In
the case of Nord-Trøndelag the historic design is that of St. Olav, who
according to the saga carried a white shield with a golden cross at the battle
of Stiklestad (traditionally dated to 1030). St. Olav was killed in the battle.
