Sokolovac is community of about just less then 6 000 inhabitants, some 10 km SE fo Koprivnica, on the main road leading from Zagreb. As such, I have seen the flag hoisted on the community building number of times I passed on the road in 1998 when I was conscript in Koprivnica and on many occasions afterwards I was driving there. However, most of the times the flag was so wrapped around the pole that I could only note that it is green.
The Ministry of Administration apporved the design on 24 April 1996 (according to [ern03]). I have not found local legislation adoption of defining the flag (surely only because it is not available on line, and I was not searching in appropriate libraries). The design was made by Marijan Špoljar, dr. Zorko Markovic, Romano Baricevic. I suspect that these gentlemen were, at the time of adoption, members of community assembly or some such.
The coat of arms of Sokolovac is canting: azure a hawk argent stantant on a tripple mount vert. 'Sokol' means hawk.
The flag is green with the coat of arms in the middle.
