A count's coat of arms was, together with the title of count, granted to ban Josip Jelacic in 1854, and in 1860 it was transferred to his brothers Duro and Antun. It differs from the baron's coat of arms in the first and fourth quartering of the shield, partly also in the ornamentation of the coat of arms and in some colours. The shield is quartered, blue, with a red heart-shield in the middle, holding the symbols of the basic family baronets' coat of arms: on a green ground two golden double-tailed crowned lions, turned towards each other, holding in their forepaws a sword supporting a Turkish head, below the sword another two cut off Turkish heads which the lions are stepping on with their back paws; the first quartering: an argent bar with a vertically laid golden sword turned with its point upwards; the second quartering: a fortified town with two towers and a rock to the right of the town, done in natural colouring (Feldkirch - a town in Vorarlberg near which general Franjo Jelacic defeated the French in a great battle in 1797); the third quartering: a settlement with fortifications and a rock in front of it, done in natural colouring (Luciensteig - cited according to I. Bojnicic, Der Adel von Kroatien und Slavonien, Nurnberg, 1899, page 77); the fourth quartering: a gules and argent chequered bar, in the upper part a silver star, in the lower a young moon. The coat of arms is topped by a count's coronet. Decorated by three crowned helmets: above the first crown an armoured man in black with a visor and three feathers on the helmet, holding a spear in his right hand; the second has spread red and golden eagle's wings from which a golden two-tailed crowned lion rises, turned to the right holding in its right paw a red sabre and in his left a blue and gold emperor's orb; above the third crown rises an armoured man without a visor, with three feathers on the helmet, holding a spear in his left hand while his right hand is raised as for an oath; mantles red and gold, gold and blue, silver and blue. Below the coat of arms a red streamer with the motto inscribed in gold lettering: STO BOG DADE I SRECA JUNACKA.
