Flag and arms of Kraljevo - Imaged by Željko Heimer, 9 October 2005
In December 1997, the municipality of Kraljevo adopted armorial achievments and a banner of arms (photo, 2006). The symbols were designed Dr. Mijat Ivanović, a lawyer living in Vienna but originating from Kraljevo. The designs were reviewed by the Serbian Heraldry Society.
The coat of arms of Kraljevo is "Gules seven Royal crown open or (2+2+2+1).
The name of the town might be tentatively translated into English as "King's town". The town'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.
