Vrbnik is a community in easter part of the island of Krk,
opposing Novi Vinodolski on the
mainland. Community has about 1300 inhabitants (this multiplies
several time during summer, no doubt), and apart from tourism it
is well know for a high quality white wine produced there (of
unpronouncable name: lahtina). Some of the best restaurants
on Adriatic are there, too. There is an other place named Vrbnik,
just south of Knin, but it does not have a community status - it
is virtually a suburb of Knin.
The decision on the Coat of Arms and the flag is issued in the local official gazette, but unfortunately I don't have the full text of it, only the name: Odluka o grbu i zastavi Opcine Vrbnik, Slubene novine Promorsko-goranske upanije, br. 14/98 .
The coat of arms is blue with white religious motives and golden star in canton. The flag is yellow with the coat of arms in the middle. So claims Tomislav ipek, spotting the flag on TV report about a month ago.
