Moskenes is a municipality in Nordland county, Norway. The area of the municipality comprises the southern part of Moskenesøya. It is part of the Lofoten traditional region. The administrative centre of the municipality is the village of Reine.
The municipality (originally the parish) is named after the old Moskenes farm ("Muskenes" - 1567), since the first church was built there. The first element is probably derived from the word mosk/musk n 'sea spray', the last element is Nes which means 'headland'.
The coat-of-arms is from modern times. They were granted on 12 September 1986. The arms show a vortex spiral. Vortexes or whirlpools, such as the Moskstraumen, appear in the channel just south of the island of Moskenes when the tide comes in, making it a hazardous channel.
