The present municipality was created in 1974 when the former City of Hässleholm, itself incorporated in 1914, was amalgamated with seven surrounding municipalities.
Approximately 50,000 people live in Hässleholm district. Houses and workplaces are unusually well spread throughout the district, so a relatively large proportion of the population lives out in the country. In addition to the main town of Hässleholm with 18,000 inhabitants, there are six townships with full services and a number of smaller communities.
The district is the largest in Skåne, with an area of 1,270 square kilometers.
The municipal coat of arms was granted in 1920 and registered for the new municipality in 1974. The cross symbolizes the railway junction, which is the origin of the town Hässleholm. The hazelnuts allude to the name Hässleholm.
