In addition to the main flag, the town also uses flags with the name and a large coat of arms on a light blue or white background.

In 2012, Trebinje received the status of a city, and thus the inscription Municipality (Opština) of Trebinje changed to Town (Grad) of Trebinje.

Under the shield is an ornament of grapevine branch characteristic for the region and beneath it a ribbon with the inscription of "Trebinje". The central part of the shield is a cross, and the basic symbol of the shield is a tower, as a symbol of vigilance and elevation. The blue colour in the shield represents the river; in the top left and right corner of the shield are two figures of birds replicated from an original relief found at the territory of Trebinje.
