Røyken kommune

Midtbygda serves as the administrative center for the kommune. The name of this kommune comes from the Norwegian word for smoke "røyk" and, since smoke is hard to portray, fire is used on its shield.   The name of the kommune is actually derived from an old farm name. It shares the peninsula between Drammensfjord and Oslofjord with the municipality of Hurum.
