Cerovlje is a small community in central Istria few kilometers north-east of Pazin, with about 1,800 inhabitants, only about 200 of them lives in the vilage of the same name.
The name of the community refers to oak wood, 'cer' being the archaic word for oak or specifically and as in the modern language used as Croatian scientific name for the spieces Quercus cerris.
The information of the coat of arms I received from Tomislav `ipek, who sent me a photo of a road sign containing the coat of arms, and on his description of the flags he saw in Cerovlje in 2003.
I believe that such symbols are probably not confirmed by the Ministry. So they are not entirely legal, but still used. In all probablity, they would be replaced by a more heraldic design in future, though it may not be a hurry to do that.
The coat of arms is a shield argent with an oak branch with two leaves and two acorns proper. The shield is bordered yellow with the black inscription in the chief reading CEROVLJE. There is a blue and yellow "heraldic" ornament that extends into green border in the base.
The flag is yellow, vertical in layout, with the coat of arms set in the lower half. Probably the ratio is 1:2.
