Adopted: 19th March 2002. The coat of arms of Vrhovine is per
pale gules a squirell or and of the second a headgear from Lika
gules trimmed and with five fringes sable, in base overall a
mount vert. A ribbon in the base bears the name of the community.
The flag is vertical, red with the coat of arms in the middle.
The flag edges are yellow. The table flag is equal with
additional yellow inscription VRHOVINE in the lower part. It is
prescribed also a "car and souvenir flag" of irregular
shape (presumably this means rectangular with trianuglar fly, but
who knows) 8x15 cm diagonally divided into red field with the
squirell and yellow field diagonally inscribed VRHOVINE. There is
also a ceremonial flag that is basically a banner of arms.
All these symbols of Vrhovine are probably not yet approved by the Ministry of Justice and Administration.
Vrhovine is a community of nearly 3,000 inhabitants some 30 km north of Gospic, covering high regions of Mala Kapela mountain range between Otocac and Plitvice lakes.
