Coat of arms of Koška - Image by Željko Heimer, 14 October 2007
The coat of arms is "Azure three corn ears flanked with two leaves or issuant from a mount vert".
The Statutes say that the corn ears motives are taken from the seal of Koška dated 1823, which was preserved in the archives of the Valpovo Manor and was transferred to the State Archives in Osijek.
