The coat of arms is described in Chapter II, Article 3 of the Decision, as follows:

In a triangular, heart-shaped shield, on blue, a golden-yellow ferryboat with a rudder.
The original of the coat of arms of the municipality of Slavonski Šamac shall be preserved in the municipality of Slavonski Šamac.

The design pictures a traditional wooden ferry, as were used on the Sava river in the region, presumably symbolizing Šamac as an important river crossing and port.
