Overview

Kijevo is a community in the `ibenik-Knin County, 50 km north-east of `ibenik. The Croats formed a community (~upa) in Kijevo as soon as they reached the regions, as it is mentioned already in 777 within the Livno County. Today it is a small village with about 1,200 inhabitants, and most of the inhabitant of the community lives in there.
The Coat of Arms of Kijevo is azure a ruined church or. It is the church of St. Salvator (Sv. Spas), originating from 9th century, with the oldest remaining belfry in Croatia vitnessing the Frankish influence on the christianization of Croats.
Almost identical coat of arms picturing the same church (gules a ruined church argent masoned sable) was used by neighbouting city of Vrlika (in the Split-Dalmatia County). I suppose that the church was on its territory earlier ad in some territorial reform was given to Kistanje, but I may be wrong. as it appears Vrlika does not use the coat of arms any more, which may indicate that my assumptions may be right.
The flag is red with yellow bordered coat of arms in the middle.
There is also a Ceremonial Flag in form of red golfanon with three tails, the middle one longer, all three ending triangulary and all containing yellow floral ornament and fringe along bottom. The coat of arms is in the middle and the name of the community above it in two arhces.
