Coat of arms of Radlje ob Dravi - Image by Željko Heimer, 5 May 2004
The coat of arms of Radlje ob Dravi is based on a XVIIth century seal, picturing on a red field silver Archangel Michael standing with wings displayed holding in his dexter a flamy sword and in his sinister scales and with his sinister leg over a dead dragon vert. Along the chief is inscribed "RADELAH MERINBERCH RADLJE", the first being (I believe) the oldest variation of the town name, the second is the German version and the last the modern Slovene name.
