Coat of arms

[Coat of arms of Semic]by Zeljko Heimer

According to the Decision:

'The coat of arms is made of typical elements representing the identification of the municipality on wider, state level. A stylized grape represents vine growing as the most important branch in municipality, and therefore the grape is in the center of the coat of arms.
An important part of the coat of arms is also a stylized linden leaf, in its upper part turned towards the grape playing the role of the vine tendril. The shape of the linden leaf tells that the municipality of Semic is famous for numerous old linden trees, among which the most famous is the Kocka lipa 600-yearsold. With this two natural elements is represented the connection between the linden leaf and the grape, between the tradition and the modern times.'
