The coat of arms of Gornja Stubica is "Argent on a green hill inflamed red a golden crown".
The simple crown inflamed symbolizes the leader of the peasant's uprising of 1573, Matija Gubec. The uprising was the largest in this part of Europe and included serfs from Northern Croatia and Slovenia. Its center was in Gornja Stubica nearby an impressive, still standing linden tree. A simple iron crown as that in the coat of arms heated to shining was used in torture when Gubec was put to death after his capturing.
