Official blazon in Swedish: "I svart fält en balkvis ställd pil på en spänd båge, allt av guld, utom bågsträngen, pilspetsen och fjädrarna, som är av silver. Skölden krönes med grevskapets krona."

Blazoned in English: "Sable, a hand bow in bend and arrow aimed toward dexter chief, or; bow string, arrowhead and feathered tail, argent. The shield's crown is an count's crown."
