Coat of Arms
by Zeljko Heimer, 20 June 2004
Hraacina is a community in the Krapina-Zagorje County, 2, 000 inhabitants, less the 150 in the village of the same name. It issome 30 km north east of Zagreb, towards Vara~din.
The coat of arms is shown in several tourist punlications and leaflets and forwarded to me by Tomislav `ipek: Gules a mullet of eight or within a border of the same. Such coat of arms would have much chance to the be confirmed by the Ministry, but I have no info on that. The existance of the matching flag is highly probable, but again, no info.
I have no explanation for the symbolic. Since the name Hraacina has root in the word for oak (hrast) one would expect something of the sort, but no... However, if there is a ceremonial flag, it would surely be ornamented with oak brances, I'd guess...
