The coat of arms of Panambi, designed by Lieselotte Gerling, is prescribed by Municipal Law No. 68 promulgated on 21 May 1956.

The coat of arms is composed of a Portuguese shield divided into four equal parts. The colors are those of the flag of Rio Grande do Sul, green, yellow, and red, with black outlines. The shield is surmounted by a half-cogwheel, as a symbol of industry, inscribed with "Cidade das Máquinas Panambi" in red capital letters.
The plow featured in the first quarter represents agriculture.
The hammer and anvil represent blacksmith's work, a tradition among the immigrants who settled the place.
In the lower quarters, the palm tree and the oak laves and acorns represent the union between Brazil and Germany.
