Coat of Arms
by Zeljko Heimer, 9 May 2004
Generalski Stol is a community in the Karlovac County, some 20
km southwest of Karlovac on
Mrenica river. The community has less then 4,000
inhabitants, and the main town of the same name has merly 700
This unusual name of the town was given in the 17th century when it was the seat of headquarters of General of the Military Border, Vuk Krsto Frankopan (ca. 1588-1652), the father of much more known Fran Krsto Frankopan, in his campains defending from the Turks. The previously recorded name was Lipovac, derived from the word lipa meaning linden (tree), that is reflected in the newly adopted coat of arms.
The coat of arms is shown on (Un)official web pages of the community of Generalski Stol <generalski-stol.netfirms.com>. It may be blazoned: azure a chevron throughout inverted and in chief a linden leaf sliped and fruited or.
Judging from the artistic features of the design, it would surely be from the Rijeka Heraldik-art d.o.o. workshops, and then there should surely be a flag and probably also a ceremonial flag to go with it.
Unfortunately, until now, no response from the webmaster.
