Asker

Asker is a municipality in Akershus county, Norway. It is part of the Viken traditional region. The administrative centre of the municipality is the village of Asker. The municipality is a suburb of Oslo, the national capital. Asker was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt).IntroductionNameThe municipality is named after the old Asker farm, since the first church was built here. The name is the plural form of ask which means "ash tree".Coat-of-armsThe coat-of-arms is from modern times. They were granted on 7 October 1975. The arms show a green background with three silver-colored tree trunks and are thus canting arms. The trees are ashes, which were cropped every year to provide food for the animals. The trees thus developed after many years a very typical shape, which was characteristic for the area.Place of the MilleniumIn 1998, just before the millennium, the 'Askerbøringer' elected the beautiful area of Semsvannet including the mountain ridge Skaugumsåsen – to be their Place of the Millenium.
