The bottom half is blue and depicts an outline of the fortified city of Karlovac with its walls, churches, and surrounded by two rivers. The upper left corner shows a golden sun in human form, and the right side shows a crescent, silver moon. In the middle of this large shield one can find a small gold crest with initials of Joseph II. Over the whole crest stands a golden folk crown. Two mermaids on the left and right hold up the mantle of the crest from both sides.
