Klanjec is a city in the Krapina-Zagorje County, about 4, 000 inhabitants, however the town of the same name, it capital, numbers only about 600 inhabitants. It is some 30-ish km north-west of Zagreb, about 10 km west of Zabok, on border towards Slovenia, on the Sutla river. As some other cities, Klanjec was also first a community and was upgraded to a city in 1997.
The Coat of Arms is Gules a pair of antlers issuant from a semi-wheel or. The coat of arms is inspired in the Erdödy family coat of arms (cf. the inescutcheom in the Varazdin County coat of arms), who were imprtant
feudal rulers in the region.
The flag is light blue with the coat of arms in the middle. Most probably there exists also a ceremonial flag, but I have no info on it.
The image of the coat of arms is based on the local tourist magazine Turist plus, 06/2003. thanks to Tomislav Šipek. Probably the actual coat of arms should be a bit more elaborate, but the soruce image was rather difficult to follow exactly in my redrawing. The flag info is from Tomislav, based on his sighting of the flag in Klanjec.
