Tordinci is a community with 4,500 inhabitants, just over 1,000 of them in the village of the same name about some 10 km due west of Vukovar in the Vukovar-Srijem County.
At the moment I have no other info except that the flag of the communiyt is blue with the coat of arms in the middle - as could be seen on the photo at <> showing the community building with a blue flag hoisted on the flag staff.

At the time I reported it the photo of the community building showed only a flag on a mast that was to small to see what's on it. Now the site include the drawings of the Coat of Arms as well as further images fo the flag, confirming the design.   The coat of arms is gules a chief and a pale argent. The flag is blue with the coat of arms in the middle.   The tau-cross in the coat of armss is the initial of the community name.

Here is the source to confirm what we already know: Statut Opcine Tordinci, 10.06.2005, Službeni vjesnik Vukovarsko- srijemske županije, br. 8/05, 23. lipnja 2005, str. 87-94. As in so many cases, the description in the Statutes is very detiled but everyone misses an important detail. So, the coat of arms is described to be of a red field with a silver/white cross, without any mention that this is not quite the usual cross. On the other hand, the flag is described in all the redundant construction details: 100x200cm, size of the coat of arms width 42 cm height 50 cm, distance from the left and right edges 79 cm, from top and bottom 25 cm.
