Blazon: I rødt tre gull kløverbladkors, to over ett. In English: Guels three crosses bottony or.
Approved by the royal resolution of 18 June 1982 after a drawing by Bjørn Linnestad. [c2j87]
The three crosses symbolise the three parishes in the municipality: Vestby, Garder and Såner. (When the arms were adopted, that is. Today there are four - Hvitsten was established in 1998.

They also represent the three natural harbours in the area: Emmestad, Kjøvangen and Sonskilen. The bottony crosses are reminiscent to the design in the arms of the Norwegian Church.
It may be interesting to note that flagging regulations in Vestby allows use of municipal flag on administrative building in any time - even out of the flagging hours established for the national flag.
