The decisions from the official gazette are the first bit of information on the Lokve symbols. I believe that it is because the symbols are apparently not approved by the Ministy of Administration yet, and are probably not in use. (On a weird side - the flag is adopted three weeks before the coat of arms, even if it includes it). The decision is: Odluka o grbu Opcine Lokve, 28.03.1996, Slu~bene novine }upanije primorsko-goranske, br. 8/96, 5. travnja 1996. Odluka o zastavi Opcine Lokve, 07.03.1996, Slu~bene novine }upanije primorsko-goranske, br. 12/96, 10. svibnja 1996.
The coat of arms is azure, standing on a ground vert St. Catherine clead white and caped gules crowned and nimbed, holding a palm leaf in her sinister and a sword in her dexter hand, behind her in base a semi wheel and in dexter a fir tree.
The flag is light gray with the coat of arms in the middle. The flag is bordered yellow ("greenish yellow" says text, whatever that means and looks like!?).
Lokve is a community of somewhat over 1200 inhabitants due south-east of delnice, som 20 km east of RIjeka on the main highway to Zagreb. It includes a lake, and the forestry being the main industry. The production of doors and windows is probably what makes Lokve most famous outside the region.
