Auce county coat of arms is based on the coat of arms of Count Medem’s family,  one of the elements - the postal horn, as the Count Medem's name is closely connected with several places of Auce county.  In ancient times the postal horn sound heralded the arrival of the mail coach, inviting people to gather. The postal horn in the new coat of arms will call residents of Auce county for good works and growth for their region.
