Nanortalik municipality is the southest town of Greenland, and
it is included in the territory of West Greenland
("Kitaa"); its official name is "Nanortalik
Kommunea". Its blazon consists of three polar bears in a red
field. I found it at <www.nanortalik.gl>,
where you can find information about the town.

Please note that Nanortalik has the only municipal arms with a
red field, because a blue field like the other municipalities
would be too close to the Greenlandic arms. Nanok means polar
bear in Greenlandic, and Nanortalik means 'the bear place'.
