The coat of arms of Trebnje that is in use, in spite of being considered as depreciated, is vertically divided in three vertical stripes blue-green-blue with three semicircles in lower parts countercharged and a golden lion couchant in chief.
Among the local subdivisions of the municipality, Mokronog, has its own coat of arms and possibly a flag, too. The coat of arms is canting, since the name can be tentatively translated as "wet foot". The coat of arms shows a human foot.

Proposed flag and arms of Trebnje - Image by Željko Heimer, 15 June 2006

Stanič [stj05] presents proposed flag and arms of Trbenje that were apparently considered for adoption in 1997, to no avail.
The proposed flag was horizontally divided green-yellow with the coat of arms in the middle.

The original proposal for the coat of arms was designed by Bogdan Breznik:
Per fess vert a griffin rampant or langued and armed gules and or semee of honeycomb sable.

To this was soon added on the request of the local councilors a pyramid per fess argent and vert to represent the anti-tank block used in the War of Independence in 1991 and a feather gules to represent the local writers.
The honeycomp should represent the long tradition of beekeeping in the region whereas the green field with the griffin is taken from the coat of arms of Lady Hema, a ruler of the region in XIth century.
