[COA of Lillesand]image by Tomislav Šipek, 08 December 2015

Balzon: I blått tre sølv ankere forent i trepass. In English: Azure three anchors in pall annulets conjoined.
Approved by the royal resolution of 11 September 1987 after a drawing by Daniel Rike. [c2j88]
Three thee anchors symbolise the three communities that were joined in 1962 - Lillesand, Vestre Moland and Høvåg, as already noted and described in [c2j87] but not yet depicted there, as it was at the time still not approved by the resolution. Thus the [c2j87] shows the previous COA of Lillesand (the other two municipalities did not have any arms prior to 1962, apparently), showing already an anchor and a tern flying over it. It is shown also at  It was designed by Jens T. Thommasen and Kjell Westermark Mørch. That design, adopted in the municipal government on 15 December 1954 was not approved by a royal resolution. It obviously served as inspiration for the current design element - anchor.
