Oriovac is a community in the Slavonski Brod-Posavina County, about 20 km west of Slavonski Brod along the highway Zagreb-Brod. Population just under 7,000 with about 2,000 of them living in the place of the same name. The nearby marshes has been transformed into the fish pools long ago. Today most famous by the industry "Oriolik" producing furniture and polyurethane products.
I have for some time a photocopy of the Coat of Arms from some document dated June 2004, but missing the info on colours. On <> I found a coloured image that enables me a decently reliable drawing. The coat of arms of Oriovac is: gules a heron argent holding a walnut or. The heron refers to the marshy regions along Sava river, nowdays the fish pools, and the walnut may be reference to the origin of the place name (walnut = orah in Croatian) as well as to the furniture industry by which Oriovac is famous. So far, no info on flag itself.
