Raša (Ras<a) is a community in the Istria County. Population about 4,000, some 2,000 in the small town of the same name. It is situated about, half way between Rijeka and Pula, some 30 km northeast of Pula. Raša is often nicknamed the youngest city in Istria, it was built in 1937 as miners' settlement, and mining is still the most important industry there.   The symbols were adopted some time in November 2003, according an article in a local newspaper: Kristian Stepcic Reisman: "Opcina Raša dobila novi grb - Rudarska svjetiljka kao putokaz za bolju buducnost", "Ca je novega?" besplatni informativni list, br. 3/03, Holcim, Raša, prosinac 2003, available on line at <>. It was designed (as it is obvious by the style) by the Rijeka company Heraldik-art d.o.o.  
The Coat of Arms of Raša is Azure a miner's lamp or inflamed gules iradiating argent. The flag is dark-blue with the coat of arms bordered yellow. Ratio 1:2. The Ceremonial Flag is a blue gonfalon with triangular fly ending with golden fringe, containing the yellow bordered coat of arms in the middle, the name of the community above and linden and olive branches below.
