"coat of arms of the Commune is the gold, six-pointed star surrounded partially by the wreath of wheat.
Above both ends of the wreath are triple rosettes of the dark red color fimbriated in gold.
All of this is placed on the shield, which can be called French style, modern, but slightly modified, of the blue color.
Distinguishing the Arms is a blue, princely crown with golden construction and cross, and the ribbon with the legend: Gmina* Wilkow* Gmina' above the shield.
Side elements of the arms are holders (supporters) on both sides of the shield.
These are black wolves (WILK in Polish means WOLF) standing on hind paws with open mouths from which the red tongues sticks out.
Arms of Wilkow are patterned after the old seal preserved in the State Archives in Wroclaw.
