Strömstad is a town in Västra Götaland County, in western Sweden. The town is located close to the Norwegian border at the estuary of the small Strömstad River.
Originally, the province Bohuslän, where Strömstad is situated, belonged to Norway until 1658, when Sweden took it through warfare. At Strömstad, there was a small fishing village known as Strömmen. The town got small privileges as a merchant town (köping) shortly thereafter, which seems to have made it expand, because it is documented to have gotten a charter in 1676 by King Charles IX of Sweden, yet some documents show it was considered a city in 1672. As it was the seat for a merchant navy, the coat of arms was designed with such a ship, and has remained that way even after the sailing ships navy were discontinued in the 19th century. The city became the seat for Sweden's warfare.
