In brief: Heart blood flow
Coronary arteries bring oxygenated blood to the heart.
Coronary veins returned that same blood to the venous circulation. Both types of vessels sit on the surface of the heart.

In brief: Circulate blood
The coronary arteries circulate blood to the heart muscle and the veins drain the blood from the outside of the heart muscle.
