Coat of arms of Semič

[Coat of arms of Semic]

Coat of arms of Semič - Image by Željko Heimer, 13 March 2000

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 activity in the 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 recalls that the municipality of Semič is famous for numerous old linden trees, among which the most famous is the Kocka lipa, 600-year old. With these two natural elements is represented the connection between the linden leaf and the grape, between the tradition and the modern times.
