The current Municipality Statutes Statut Općine Trnava, adopted on 14 July 2009 by the Municipality Assembly and published on 15 July 2009 in Službeni glasnik Općine Trnava, No. 3, consolidate the 2007 Decision into the text of the Statutes, which now includes the description of the symbols.

Coat of arms of Trnava

The coat of arms is "Gules a bunch of grapes or with two leaves vert in a chalice argent on a mount vert".
The chalice represents the "presence of the Diocese" in the region, since wine production was mainly for the use of the nearby Đakovo Diocese; the grapes symbolise viticulture. The coat of arms is remotely based on the previous, unapproved coat of arms.

The first symbols of Trnava are prescribed by Decision Odluka o grbu i zastavi Općine Trnava, published in 1995 in Službeni glasnik Općine Trnava, No. 1.
The Municipality Statutes Statut Općine Trnava, adopted on 16 October 2001 by the Municipality Assembly and published in Službeni glasnik Općine Trnava, include in Article 4 a description of the symbols.
The symbols were not approved by the Central State Office for Administration.

The flag is in proportions 2:3, horizontally divided yellow-green with the coat of arms in the middle.
However, the flag in actual use (photo) was produced in the usual 1:2 proportions, matching the proportions of the State and County flags hoisted next to it.

The coat of arms is made of a a red shield with a green double mount, forming with the pointing end of the shield in the base a green heart shape. From the heart is issuing a white cross from which is issuing a semi-sun with eight rays. In the base of the green part are a red bunch of grapes in the centre, two yellow wheat ears in dexter, and an golden oak leaf with three acorns in sinister.
