Oak leaves were chosen as Tingvoll has the northernmost autochtonous oak wood. The abovementioned municipal web site recounts that Ulseth made the design as part of her diploma thesis at Norwegian National Academy of Craft and Art Industry (since 1996 Oslo National Academy of the Arts), defended on 5 November 1982. Among other symbolic, she stated that five leaves stand for five towns in the municiplaity: Tingvoll, Straumsnes, Gyl, Torjulvågen and Meisingset.
