The modern coat of arms of Krapina is based on a seal from XII century, picturing the same fortified city in circular shape with name of the city around it. The current colours are determined finally during XIX century. The flag is red with the coat of arms in the middle.
As some point in early 1990's it was reported that Krapina uses flag of brown field with the coat of arms of somewhat different artistic redention all in golden-yellow lined with black. Status of that flag unknown and unconfirmed. Possibly it was used to differentiate from very similar flag (unofficially) used by the County at the same time.

I just received a photo in local magazine Zagorski list, br.34, 09.06.2004. shows the three flags on display in the Krapina-Zagorje County Assembly Hall - the middle one is the flag of Croatia, to its right (viewer's left) is the Ceremonial Flag of the county and on the other side is the ceremonial flag of the city of Krapina. I believe that such display of two ceremonial flags together is rather unusual, probably the two share the same assembly hall.
According to the same photo and also on the flag reported by Tomislav Šipek from several media, the ceremonial flag of the city of Krapina is a red gonfalon with three unequally long triangularly ending tails with golden tassels and with the coat of arms in the middle an dthe name of the city above.
It may be interesting to note that the two flags side by side on the photo clearly show different rectangular sleaves in the upper edge. I do not find any specialy meaning in that, but just an observation.
