His especial weapons are a club (khetaka orsaunanda), the ploughshare (hala), and the pestle (musala), from which he is called Phala and Hala, also Halayudha, plough-armed; Halabhrit, 'plough-bearer;' Langali and Sankarshana, 'ploughman;' and Musali, `pestle-holder.' As he has a palm for a banner, he is called Taladhwaja. Other of his appellations are Guptachara, who goes secretly; 'Kampala and Samvartaka."Source: http://www.mythfolklore.net/india/encyclopedia/balarama.htm"
