Coat of arms of Zlatar Bistrica - Image by Željko Heimer, 26 June 2004
The coat of arms of Zlatar Bistrica is "Vert a turkey or standing on a four-spoked wheel sable issuant from a bar wavy argent". The wavy line represents river Krapina and the wheel probably stands for the mills that were built over it. Turkey is a typical agricultural product of the region and a traditional Sunday meal.
