Coat of arms

Description of coat of arms:
The golden (=yellow) shield is divided by a blue bendy, wavy line. A black raven is upon the sinister chief point, a black branch of oak having nine acorns upon the dexter base point.
The blue bend is symbolizing River Warnow. Oak trees are widespread in the municipality's area. The number of acorns is symbolizing the number of settlement cores. Finally the raven is canting. The old Slavic name of the village had been "Vran" (=raven).
