Coat of Arms
by Zeljko Heimer, 23 July 2004
Vodice is a small city in the Šibenik-Knin County on the
coast some 10 km north of Šibenik. About 9,000 inhabitants, 5,000
in the city itself. In the last years it has become kind of a
mondene spot of the tourism of the mid-Dalmatia. Until 1997
Vodice had status of a community.
The coat of arms of Vodice adopted before 1990's is blue bordered shield divided horizontally in yellow and light blue with a gray well bearing yellow shape of the church portal, above it a tower embattelemnts and in base a red bar above two white wavy lines. This coat of arms is apparently still used, but as far as I have ntocied there is no flag to go with it. probably the design did not pass thouh the Ministry of administration procedure, and I doubt that such as it is it would. I estimate that it was originally adopted in 1980's, and probably the original design included a red five-pointed star or some other emblem of the socialist society (probably instead of the church in the middle), however, I found no sources to confirm that.
