Coat of Arms

The community of Novigrad (named often Noigrad Zadarski or Novigrad Dalmatinski to differenciate fro the other two places in Croatian with the same name: Novigrad Istarski (Cittanova) and Novigrad Podravski) is situated about 30 km east of Zadar in a deep bay called Novigradsko more (Novigrad sea). The city tracks its history back to Roman times. The stone carved coats of arms are preserved, but the colours were (apparently) first introduced in the book "Grbovi Jugoslavije" (Laszowski, 1934), since when these colours are said to be traditional. The Coat of Arms is in use in Novigrad, but it is not known if the decision of its adoption for the Coat of Arms of the community was adopted and weather its use was approved by the Ministry. The flag is not reported (yet!).
