Historic Sites
Oppegård is a village and municipality in Akershus county, Norway. It is part of the traditional region of Follo. The administrative centre of the municipality is the village of Kolbotn. The new municipality of Oppegård was separated from the municipality of Nesodden on 1 July 1915. The municipality has an area of 37km², hence it is the smallest municipality in Akershus by area.General informationNameThe municipality is named after the old Oppegård farm, since the first church was built here. The first element is uppi which means "upper" and the last element is garđr which means "farm". Coat-of-armsThe coat-of-arms is from modern times. They were granted on 6 August 1976. The arms show 17 gold triangles on a black background. The 17 triangles symbolize 17 trees, which again symbolize the 17 old farms in the municipality. Most of the farms lie in an area called Svartskog ('black forest'), so the arms are canting arms.HistoryOppegård has been populated since the end of the last ice age. Archeological remains of hunter-gatherer societies dating back to 5000–6000 BCE have been found, as well as the remains of agriculatural settlements from 1000–2000 BCE. The main southern roads connecting Oslo to Sweden and Denmark have passed through Oppegård since the Iron Age.
