Flag of Lopar - Image by Željko Heimer, 14 April 2009
Lopar was established as a Municipality in 2006 by secession from the Town of Rab. It is the actual birth place of St. Marin, known as the founder of the Republic of San Marino; Rab is claiming the same thing, being the closest town to the place. Both claims are probably equally valid.

The symbols of Lopar (images, p. 32) were publicly unvealed on 8 September 2008 in a ceremonial session of the Municipal Assembly celebrating the Day of the Municipality.
The symbols were designed by the Heraldic Art d.o.o. company, from Rijeka.
The flag (photo) is in proportions 1:2, light blue with the coat of arms, bordered yellow, in the middle.
