Civic heraldry of Serbia - грбови Србиjе
District : Srem
The large arms:
The arms were granted 1749.
The three lines represents three rivulets that flow around Ruma. The stars represent the military credit of citizens in the war against Turkey. The letters read: IN HOC SIGNO EVADET OPPIDUM RUMA (With this sign the Town Ruma has developed).
According to another mail I received the shield historically should be red, the cross silver and the two arms were not the part of the shield, but supported a coronet above the shield. On the altar, there was no crown, but a green wreath. The stars were silver mullets, not stars.
The arms in the Coffee Hag album +/- 1932
