The city of Varadinske Toplice, some 12 km SE of
Varadin, has history reaching the Ancient Roman period,
when it was known as Aquae Isae and were known for its
termal sumporic spas. It is not surprising that the health
tourism is today the most important economy in the pitoresque
little city. Since the administrative reorganization in 1992
until rehawl in 1997 Varadinske Toplice was a community.
Population: 7,200 (Zemljopisni atlas Republike Hrvatske",
kolska knjiga, Zagreb 1993).
The symbols were determined with a decision mentioned in he new city statutes: Statut Grada Varadinske Toplice, 25.09.2001, Slubeni vjesnik Varadinske upanije, br. 17/2001. The decision is named: Odluka o grbu i zastavi Grada Varadinske Toplice, but it gives no details when it was published and where (though I apresume it would be around 1997, in SVV, too)
The coat of arms, as seen on the road signs and similar (by my observation and photos), is Azure a sea-lion or rampant langued and n armed gules holding in his dexter a castle argent roofed gules with a belfry. The flag is most certainly monocoloured with the coat of arms in the middle, but I have no yet confirmation on the field colour. (Possibly

In the mean time a new decision was made to superseed it, but
as far as I am aware, it does not change anything in the descign
of the coat of arms nor the flag. So the old and the new
decisions are: Odluka o grbu i zastavi Grada Varadinske
Toplice, Slubeni vjesnik Varadinske upanije,
br. 19/1999. Odluka o grbu i zastavi Grada Varadinske
Toplice, 16.04.2003, Slubeni vjesnik Varadinske
upanije, br. 7/2003, 18.04.2003.
The flag is blue (dark blue as seen in flags hoisted on the cityhall) with the coat of arms in the middle (this using light blue in the shield) bordered with a yellow line.
Previously I have been showing the flag (on the FAME) without the yellow line, since it was not visible on the photos I had, but the border is clearly defined in the decision.
