Coat of Arms

The ancient brooch from Trikāta (the 3rd Century) depicted in the County’s coat of arms presents many important Latvian signs and symbols with figurative meanings. The circle represents the Sun and the entire wide world. The cross is the symbol of the God’s creative power and blessing. The fire crosses or swastikas stand for four sons of Thunder, while the thunderbolts symbolise the Thunder himself - the maker and manager of the world. The square in the very centre of the brooch and the cross symbolises the initial (God’s) thought, idea, impulse. It is also referred to as the table, which comprises all the further directions of the world’s development in a small scale. 

The coat of arms of Beverīna County was dedicated on 26 July 2014 at Trikāta St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church.
