Flag of Kraljevo - Image by Željko Heimer, 9 October 2005
In December 1997, the municipality of Kraljevo, in central Serbia, adopted armorial achievments and a banner of arms. The author was Dr. Mijat Ivanović, a lawyer living in Vienna but originating from Kraljevo. The designs were reviewed by the Serbian Heraldry Society "White Eagle".
Coat of arms of Kraljevo - Image by Željko Heimer, 9 October 2005, after the the municipal website
The coat of arms of Kraljevo can be blazoned as:
Gules seven open royal crown or (2+2+2+1).
The name of the city Kraljevo might be tentatively translated into English as "King's town". The city's name as well as the seven crowns are due to the fact that seven Serbian kings were crowned in the nearby monastery Žiča. The shield of the ceremonial coat of arms is topped with a falcon as a symbol of cultural center and a ribbon below ending in the national tricolour bears a motto Nama dobro a nikome zlo (To us well to none ill). The non-ceremonial coat of arms consists only of the shield.
