The Heart symbol
The borders of the Icelandic Highlands roughly outline the shape of a heart. Moreover, the natural scientist and author Guðmundur Páll Ólafsson has described the Highlands as the heart of the country: "As long as we can stand our ground: to defend the Highlands, the very heart of the country itself, with cunning and courage as their sword and their shield. We must defend them now or never. At stake is our reputation, yours and mine, the very honor of all Icelanders, past, present and to come."
The heart is golden to represent the wealth inherent to the unspoiled Highlands. Furthermore, the heart is formed from two rings that represent loyalty to what we hold dear.
