General information

Gjerdrum was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt).

Gjerdrum borders the municipalities of Nannestad, Nittedal, Ullensaker, Skedsmo, and Sørum. The administrative centre of the municipality is the village of Ask.

Name

The municipality (originally the parish) is named after the old Gjerdrum farm (Norse Gerðarvin). The first element is the genitive of a river name Gerð and the last element is vin f 'meadow, pasture'. The river name is derived from the Norse word garðr meaning 'fence' and so the meaning is 'the river whose function is a fence (and/or as a border)'.

Coat-of-arms

The coat-of-arms is from modern times. They were granted in 1993. The arms show a traditional Norwegian form of roundpole fence. The arms are also canting because the name of the municipality refers to a fence.

Sports

The local sports team is Gjerdrum IL.
