Coat of arms
The creation of the arms has a peculiar and somewhat romantic story attached to it. It was the first arms created by a parish in the Södermanland province in 1941. It was inspired by a hop plant that some locals had seen on a farm. The left part of the arms, an oak tree, is the inisgnia for the historical Oppunda Hundred, stretching through the municipality.
The renowned Säfstaholm Castle (slott) was bought by the municipality in 1968. It is used for exhibitions and other cultural events.
