The coat of arms is in a blue shield with a yellow base forming two coticed triangles, from it is raising a maroon cross with two cross-bars "interlaced" with the Croatian checky shield in front of a yellow square lozenge bordered yellow, whose border forms two wattled squares in the base. The shield is topped with a white ribbon inscribed in red "CERNA".
The minutes of the 18th session of the Municipal Assembly say:

Also, a procedure for the production of the official coat of arms of the municipality was initiated. The coat of arms used until now was not official, since it was never approved by the Central State Office for Administration. It was not approved since it was made against all the heraldic rules. Now, the wish is to get an official coat of arms and flag that may represent us.
