The coat of arms of Kranjska Gora is "Or on a base vert standing a black grouse azure with feathers and tail sable".
The black grouse (Lyrurus tetrix or Tetrao tetrix L.) is a protected bird chosen as symbol of the region. The blue colour of the bird is called "cobalt blue" in the Decision.
Valt mentioned that in Slovene the bird is called rusevec. In artistic representation, the red crest and the white mark on the wings are added, but they are not blazoned.
