Axel CoA image from the Axel municipal website.
The CoA was adapted slightly after the merger in 1970. The lion got dressed up a bit, by giving him a golden crown and golden nails, he know has a red tongue and a golden collar with a cross around his neck. The CoA was approved by Royal decree on 17 June 1970.
