The Coat of Arms is per bend serrated argent and vert. It is canting as the name of the place is derived from the word meaning a step or stair.
The flag is blue with yellow bordered coat of arms in the middle.
The Ceremonial Flag is blue gonfalon with triangular fly with fringe, bearing two vine branches below the coat of arms, the name of the city above and the year 1209 being the year of the first mention of the city name in the historical files.

Donja Stubica is a city in the Krapina Zagorje County, somewhat less then 6,000 inhabitants, about half of them living in the city itself, due north of Zagreb (but between is the Zagreb Mountain, 1033 m, so it takes at least a good half an hour drive or more from here to there anyway you go). Donja Stubica was first given status of a community, but was "upgraded" to city in 1997.
The coat of arms adopted in early 1990's and occasionally used was a bit more ornamented then the one today (note the curls atop the shield), also having the "dowstairs" (i.e. per bend dancety) but in green and blue finbriated golden, and having overall a golden representation of the local church. The design was probably simplified (for the better!) on the insistence of the Ministry of Administration. It is most probably that the flag was adopted only with the new design, at least I found no reports on the flag with the old one.
