The Arms of Gunnar Kari Alexander Njalsson

These arms were adopted in 2004 and are a differenced version of those of the pre-existing (1921) arms of Groff-McKouwn, matrimonial grandparent of Admin. Lic. Gunnar K. A. Njalsson, - an administrative scientist and publishing executive of the cities of Grankulla and Espoo, Finland. The Groff-McKouwn arms are also a differentiation of the McKeown armorial bearings originating from Ireland. According to tradition the McKouwn family traces its ancestry to one of the seven sub-clans of the royal U Niall of Ireland. The Swiss Groff family is mentioned as early as 1300 in Bretzwil, canton Zrich, Switzerland and emigrated from there to Sinsheim, Germany around 1651. The surname has also presented as Graff or Graf which, in the English language, translates to "Count".

The Njalsson family, academics and entrepreneurs by tradition, appears in public documents in southern Finland during the 1900's as belonging to the Swedish speaking minority of that country. The wolves, fir branch and eight-pointed stars signify the Nordic roots of the Njalsson family. In the adopted and differentiated arms, the lyre and laurel wreath have been introduced and signify the earlier Politices Magister title bestowed upon the owner at the Promotione sollemni et iubilari of 2000 at the University of Helsinki.
