The coat of arms is blue with a house over a bridge with an embattled tower to the right and a bell-tower to the left all silver/white, from which is issuing a golden palm tree. The flag is yellow with the coat of arms in the middle. Adopted: around 1995 (?).

The decisions in the official gazette regarding the flag of Crikvenica:
- Odluka o osnivanju Odbora za grb i zastavu, Službene novine Županije primorsko-goranske, br. 2/95.
- Odluka o grbu i zastavi Grada Crikvenice, 03.08.1995, Službene novine Županije primorsko-goranske, br. 12/96, 10. svibnja 1996.
- Odluka o uvjetima uporabe grba i zastave Grada Crikvenice, 03.08.1998, Službene novine Primorsko-goranske županije, br. 17/98, 21. kolovoza 1998.

The first one establishes a commission to prepaire for the adoption of the symbols.
The 1995 decision adopts the symbols (the buildings in the Coat of Arms represent the old fortified city of Crikvenica, so called 'kaštel'). The decision prescribes that it shall be published in the gazette after the ministry approves the design, so the publication date only in May 1996 - presumably after the approval from the Ministry, of course.
The third one further elaborates on conditions of use of the city symbols and the procedure for their commercial exploitation. It prescribe, like the most other decisions in Croatia, that the use of the coat of arms and the flag in educational, scientific and artistic purposes is free as long as it does not undermine the dignity and fame of the city.
Here in Crikvenica also use in propaganda purposes the use is free under above conditions, though I am not quite sure how could they determine what propaganda is dignified and what is not. The adoption date of the flag would be 3 August 1995.
The decisions do not mention the ceremonial flag even as a hint, even if it is certainly used, as seen on photos in media.
