Coat of arms of Vrlika

The coat of arms is "Gules a ruined church argent masoned sable".
It represents the St. Saviour (Sv. Spas) church, originating from the 9th century, with the oldest remaining belfry in Croatia, showing the Frankish influence on the Christianisation of Croats. An almost identical coat of arms ("Azure a ruined church or"), picturing the same church, is used by the neighbouring municipality of Kijevo.
