The coat of arms of Jesenje appeared in the header of the April 2010 issue of the Radoboj-Jesenje gazette Radobojsko-Jesejanjski list, glasilo opčina Radoboj i Jesenje, No. 23, released on 23 April 2010.
The emblems refer to the patron saint of Jelenje, Saint John the Baptist, the chalice pouring water with the dove symbolizing the Holy Ghost.

To a citizen's inquiry about the Municipality coat of arms (16 February 2007, municipal website - page no longer online), an official answered that there was none so far, explaining that the municipality had no planned budget to allow for obtaining one.
