The Royal and Ancient Polar Bear Society

The Polar Bear Society was founded in 1963 in Hammerfest.

The idea was to create a unique memory for guests of the World´s Northernmost Town. The polar bear is our city’s coat of arms and was therefore chosen as the society’s logo. The strength of the polar bear reflects the willpower and survival skills necessary for living in the Arctic.
