Coat of arms of Lukovica - Image by Željko Heimer, 22 November 1999

The coat of arms of Lukovica can be blazoned as "Gules, between two mounts sable issuant a wheel proper on which is standing man clead sable proped on a club".

Stanič & Jakopič [j2s05] explain that the man with the club is a road robber. These were notorious in the region during the Napoleonic wars and became a kind of local tradition - today converted into a lucrative tourist attraction. The black hills symbolize gorges in the region. The red and black colours are also connected with the robbers.
