History[edit | edit source]

Tranemo Municipality is a municipality in Västra Götaland County in western Sweden and its seat is located in the town of Tranemo.
There are twelve original municipal units as of 1863, in the area. The municipal reform of 1952 created four larger entities. The next reform was implemented in two steps with unitings taking place in 1967 and 1974, leading to the present municipality. The coat of arms, granted in 1975, show a crane with a glass blowing beldge. Glass blowing is an old industry in the municipality, with the first glass blower established in 1741.
