The coat of arms is described in Article 8 of the Statutes as follows:

The coat of arms of Ljubuški is in a heart-shaped [actually, semi-circular] shield, bordered with a yellow line edged with two black lines. In the shield is a gray hill from which is raising the medieval town of Ljubuški depicted in yellow and outlined black. The town is reconstructed as it could have been looking in the Middle Ages when Ljubuški was at its climax. Below the town is represented the Trebižat river, with a wavy blue stripe. The background behind the tower is sky light blue. At the top of the shield are streching three red rectangles, between which one can glimpse two white fields. Below the shield is a ceremonial twisted ribbon inscribed Ljubuški and the year of its first written mention, "1444-MCDXLIV".
