Krapinske Toplice is a community in the Krapina-Zagorje County, just under 6,000 inhabitants, about 1,300 in the town of the same name itself. It is situated some 30 km north of Zagreb, about 5 km south(west) of Krapina. As the name 'Toplice' already suggests it is the site of thermal spa, one of the most reknown in Croatia. Traditionally it is also a site for the cardial hospital, oen which is considered today amongst the leading in the wider region. These characteristics shall be reflected in the Coat of Arms, as we shall soon see.
The coat of arms is in a red bordered silver shield a blue "fountain-heart".   The flag is blue with the coat of arms in the middle.The coat of arms image is based on the coat of arms shown in tourist magazine "Turist plus", 2003 (thanks to Tomislav Šipek). The flag is seen in use on the community hall by both me and Tomislav. That the flag is used probably means that the Ministry approved the coat of arms. If so, I suppose that this particular design would be on the very edge of the graphical principles taken up by the Ministry Commission.
