Coat of arms

 [Coat of arms of Ribnica na P.]by Zeljko Heimer

The coat of arms of Ribnica na Pohorju pictures in a silver shield a green hill from which rises a juniper tree with a red trunk, in base there is a blue pool from which is jumping a crowned golden fish. The hill stands for the Pohorje region; the juniper tree represents one of the largest juniper trees in Slovenia, found in the municipality; and the crowned fish, canting for the name of the municipality, represents the equity of the people.
