Motovun is an ancient town on a hill overlooking the Mirna river valley. Motovun is quite well known tourist destination for its exceptional pitorequeness as well as recently stated film festival. Population 2,500, but only some 600 in the old town on the hill.  
Motovun has a histocial coat of arms that was recently artistically mathced the period. However both I and Tomsialv found it only on small examples - for me too hard to make much out of it, except for the description. Anyone at this time blazon only: azure a five-towered massoned citty argent with gates or on a tripple mount vert with a rose gules.
Oddly (I say oddly, since the tourism is so important to this town) the flag is not yet reported...
