Coat of arms of Velika Trnovitica - Image by Željko Heimer, 19 November 2011
The description of the coat of arms given by the designer is u plavom polju žuto zvono nadvisuje crna trnova grančica, more or less, "Azure a bell or and in the chief a thorn branch fesswise sable". The designer's explanation for the "historical background" of the coat of arms is:
The bell stands for the local school, its bell from 1759 being preserved and displayed in the village. The thorn (Croatian, trn) branch makes the arms canting, recalling also the name of the medieval parish of St. Martin in the Thorns recorded in 1501 at this site.
