The coat of arms of Bilice is in a semi-circular shield: azure a swan argent beaked or with an eel of the second in it standing on a buoy gules issuant from barullets wavy also argent.   The flag is blue with a yellow bordered coat of arms in the middle.
The decision also describes the symbolic - the waves simbolise the sea - "since the sea and sweet water are being mixed in the Prokljan lake". The swan and eel symbolise the natual life of the lake.
The decision in the gazette also includes drawings of the coat of arms and the flag.
