Ratio: 1:2. Adopted: 19 July 1995
The flag that is apparently used is different from the description of the ceremonial flag in the Decision, which reads: "Red flag with the coat of arms of the City of Ogulin in canton. To the right of the coat of arms is a silver fort with two simetrical towers. To the left and right of the fort are the images of golden oak and linden branches. Above the fort is silver shape of Klek. The inscription 'Grad Ogulin' in golden letters is above the Klek shape. The flag is fringed with gold."

Coat of Arms


image by }eljko Heimer

The coat of arms of the City of Ogulin is Gules, two bars Argent. In chief a mullet Or, in base a Latin cross Or. The star originates from the family coat of arms of Frankopans, who owned the fort among other their possessions. Mount Klek is certainly a characteristic shape for the region, while oak and linden are important elements of old Croatian symbolic, even from pre-Christian era.
