SLOVENSKA BISTRICA

Arms of Slovenska Bistrica

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were adopted on June 26, 1984.

The arms show a city gate with three towers. The official description includes the text above the arms. The city gate has been used as the arms of the city since at least 1772, but ever since the actual composition and colours have changed considerably, as shown in the images below. There is also the possibility that the arms have been confused by several authors with the arms of Slovenj Gradec.
