The community of Malinska-Dubaanica is in NW part of  the Krk Island, with just barely above 2000 inhabitants (i.e. in winter, during the summer just like many other coastal communities the number of people spending holydays there rises the number even ten times or more). The coat of arms of Malinska - Dubaanica is Azure an oak tree eradicated or.
The oak tree is canting for the second part of the community name that is developed from the ancient slavic word for the oak groove (dub). Until 1997 the community was named only Malinska (and I am not quite sure about the story behind why the addition was added.) The flag is light blue with the Coat of Arms in the middle.

The symbols of Malinska-Dubaanica were adopted in 1997, publishe din the official gazette: Odluka o grbu i zastavi Opcine Malinska-Dubaanica, 25.10.1997, Slu~bene novine Primorsko goranske-~upanije, br. 24/97, 28. studenog 1997.
The flag is light blue with the Coat of Arms in the middle bordered golden. The light blue is explicitly used in the description of the flag, but not of the coat of arms. I have not seen the real flags, but the road signs I have seen use the light blue for the coat of arms, too (at least as far as I could remember, I forgot to take photos few moths ago). The ceremonial flag is not mentioned, but it is highly probable that there could be one.
