The flag and coat of arms of Juršinci are mentioned in the first municipal statutes Statut Občine Juršinci, adopted in 1995 and published in the local official gazette Uradni vestnik občin Ormož in Ptuj (Gorišnica, Kidričevo, Majsperk, Videm, Dornava), 12/1995.
The symbols are prescribed by the amendment Spremembe in dopolnitve statuta Občine Juršinci, adopted on 13 November 1998 and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 80/98.

The aforementioned amendment says:

[The coat of arms is] in shield shape, in upper part showing a vine branch with green leaves and red grapes on yellow field. In lower part is a black grill below which are red and yellow flames all on a green field.

Stanič [stj05] explains the coat of arms as follows. Juršinci is located in the most famous Slovenian vine producing region (around Ptuj); in Juršinci were already sold in 1905 vine stalks for new vineyards. The place was known also as Sv. Lovrenc v Slovenskih Goricah, and the grill and flames are reference to St. Laurent (as in other Slovene coats of arms). The name Juršinci is just as old (XIVth century, Sv. Lovrenc - XIVth century) and its German form was Georgendorf.
