Sv. Križ Zacretje (Zac^retje) is a community in the Krapina-Zagorje County, populatuion 7,000, 20 km. north of Zagrbe, 10 km. south of Krapina. Sv. Križ means literaly St. Cross.
The Coat of Arm seems to be approved by the Ministry: azure a cross or and in a chief argent a helmet azure lined and crowned or and visored gules manteled dexter gules and or and sinister azure and argent.
The flag is white with yellow bordered coat of arms in the middle.
For the manteled helmet it is said to be a detail from the coat of arms of Erdödy, though there surely it has been used above the shield and not in it. The golden cross on blue refers to the city name and is derived from the previously used coa-like emblem.
This Previous Coat of Arms was adpted according to my estimation around 1993. It is an overburdened shield that includes golden cross with the Croatian wattle cross in it, and blue quarters including these elements: a crown, the Croatian chequy field, a mullet, an antique helmet, a sabre, a plough on a green fields, a rising sun and a bridge in the national tricolour. The flag for the period was not reported, nor do I think that there was one.
