Tynset is a municipality in Hedmark county, Norway. It is part of the traditional region of Østerdalen. The administrative centre of the municipality is the village of Tynset.General informationNameThe municipality is named after the old Tynset farm, since the first church was built here. The first element is the genitive case of the river name Tunna ; the last element derives from setr which means "homestead" or "farm". Prior to 1918, the name was written "Tønset" .Coat-of-armsThe coat-of-arms is from modern times. They were granted on 18 October 1985. The arms show the silver/gray head of a moose on a blue background. It was chosen to symbolize the abundance of moose in the area.(See also the coat-of-arms for Aremark, Namsos, Namsskogan and Ringsaker.)HistoryThe parish of Tønsæt was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838 . Although the municipality of Alvdal was originally a part of Tynset, it became a separate municipality in 1864. The former municipality of Kvikne was merged with Tynset in 1966.
