Duga Resa is one of five cities in Karlovac county in Croatia. In late 1990's, possibly 1999, was adopted new coat of arms and the matching flag. The coat of arms is Vert six bars wavy Argent. The flag is rather simple, according to the strict rules imposed from the Ministry of Administration. It is green field with the coat of arms in the middle. The Coat of Arms is boreder in white, apparently. Ratio 1:2.
Six wavy bars certainly refer to big hidrographic power of the region, though weather there are indeed six rivers to which the six bars refer individually, or if it is a general representation of waters, I can't tell. However, as I witnessed myself not long ago spending a nice weeknd there, the region is indeed "boiling" of the fresh mountinous waters in early spring, surrounded with gentle green pastures.
The information was provided by a FAME visitor in January 2002.
Before the adoption of this coat of arms, Duga Resa used occasionally CoA-like emblem, but there was, as far as I am aware, no flag to accompany it.

The previously used coat of arms/emblem (see Previous Coat of Arms) was: per fess wavy azure and vert, in chief a curl sable, and in base chequy gules and argent. The curl might be canting to go with the city name that can be translated as a "long fringe" (though the etimologic connection is not clear), but in any case, it is symbolic for the cotton industry developed in the city.
The coat of arms seems to have been used sporadic, and the status is unknown, no flag was reported to match it.
