In the official gazettes of the Zadar County (<>) there is but one reference to the newly adopted Coat of Arms and flag for the community of Gracac. Gracac is a community in the Zadar County, the main town of the same name counting just above 4,000 inhabitants, situated in the mainland off-the coast some 30 km over the souther end of the Velebit mountain range. The place is an important crossroads, and nearby are the Cerovac caves (Cerovacke pecine), the largest explored cave system in Croatia, partially open to the public so an improtant tourist site.
The official gazette of the Counyt gives the decision with the descirption of the new symbols: Izmjene i dopune Odluke o izgledu i korištenju grba i zastave Opcine Gracac, 25. svibnja 2004, Službeni glasnik Zadarske županije, 18. lipnja 2004, str. 19. The decision amends an earlier decision that is apparently not published in the official gazette, probably adopting some other symbols that were not approved: Odluka o izgledu i korištenju grba i zastave Opcine Gracac, Kl. 017- 01/03-01-01, Urbr. 2198/31-01-03-1, 10. srpnja 2003.
The coat of arms of Gracac is: sable a bear passant or holding in his jaws a fish argent and in the chief stalactites also argent. The flag is green with the golden bordered coat of arms in the middle.
