General information

Frosta was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt). It is one of very few municipalities in Norway with unchanged borders since that date. In 2018, the municipality, which was part of the old Nord-Trøndelag county became part of the new Trøndelag county.

Name

The Old Norse form of the name was (also) Frosta. The meaning of the name is unknown. Historically, the name was also spelled Frosten.

Coat of arms

The coat of arms was granted on 26 June 1987. The arms show a gold sceptre or mace on a green background. The coat of arms was inspired by the old seal of the medieval Frostating assembly, where King Magnus VI the law-mender is sitting with a lily sceptre in his hand. Frosta was one of the historic places of justice, so this was chosen to commemorate that fact.

A number of logs sticking up along the shoreline at Frosta have been dated back to around year 1000.
