The decision is published in the official gazette in 1995 and was not changed since: Odluka o grbu i zastavi Opcine Jelenje, 23.05.1995, Slu~bene novine }upanije primorsko-goranske, br.11/95, 2. lipnja 1995.
The only difference from posted before is that the golden border around the Coat of Arms is explicitly described.
The ceremonial flag is not mentioned in the decision at all.
