Coat of arms

[Coat of arms of Vransko]by Zeljko Heimer

The coat of arms of Vransko is prescribed by the municipal statutes Statutarni sklep Obcine Vransko, adopted on 29 December 1998 and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 2/1999.

According to the municipal website, the coat of arms of Vransko has been used since 1868 and is canting for the name of the town, developed from the name of the crow bird:

Argent a crow stantant on top of a couped juniper tree issuant from base all proper

and is set within an arabesque border. The legend says that the region was once a lake, that was dried up, and that on the dried area crows gathered.
