SLOVENJ GRADEC

Arms of Slovenj Gradec

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were adopted on June 25, 1991.

The coat of arms of Slovenj Gradec is based on the seal of the city from 1310, picturing the city gate with two watch towers. Historically the arms were often shown in different composition, with different shapes of the tower, with or without a mountain in the base and with red, green or blue shield.
