Delnice is a city with somewhat more then 6000 inhabitants some 30 km due east of Rijeka in Gorski Kotar and it is today the most important city in that mountainious region, no doubt because it is situated on the road Zagreb-Rijeka.
The Coat of Arms is: Azure a man standing on a mount vert propped a scite proper. The man is clead in local garment - white shirt, golden rimmed black waistcoat, green trousers and with a black hat with golden ribbon. The coat of arms originates probably from 18th century. It is shown, e.g. in Zmajicic's 1971 book [zma71].
The flag is unknown to me. Both the flag and the modern design of the Coat of Arms must have been adopted around 1995.

I received mail from Robert Grubisa from Rijeka informing me on the flag. Here is translation sumarized:
Delnice - The flag is dark green with the coat of arms in the middle. Information based on an article in Novi List newspapers.

The flag and the Coat of Arms are adopted on 3rd March 1995 by the decision issued in the official gazette soon afterwards: Odluka o grbu i zastavi Opcione Delnice, 03.03.1995, Slu~bene novine }upanije primorsko-goranske, br. 9/95, 08. svibnja 1995.
The man in the Coat of Arms is desribed to be a forestry worker - young, brown-haired, with black hat, clead in a silver shirt with black golden edged overcoat and in green tight troursers wearing brown high shoes. The tool he is holding is described as a pick, so my previous blazon should be ammended accordingly. The flag is green with the coat of arms in the middle bordered with a golden edge.
