The coat of arms of Bački Petrovac is blue with in the center a farmer in a white costume, a red vest, a yellow hat and yellow boots. In his right hand he holds a white scythe with a yellow handle. Below him is a yellow bread-shovel; left and right are plough-irons.
The arms seem to be based on a seal from 1787, and were granted in 1998.
