Kutina is a city in Sisak-Moslavina County probably most well know for the petrochemical industry situated there. The coat of arms is blue with a golden bordered 4x4 red and white chequy plate rotated 45 degrees surmounted by a silver magpie. In the crest there is white scarf with golden fringe and two oak leaves. The flag, is white with the coat of arms in the middle. The table flag contains the name of the city inscribed under the downward offset coat of arms. Kutina bears the arms of their medieval lords Csupor de Monoszlo (C<upor Moslavac<ki), whose most prominent member was Demetrius II Csupor de Monoszlo, installed in 1446 for the bishop in Knin. The coat of arms of Csupor family is known already in 14th century. Until the end of 15th century the family died out and thier estates were eventually inherited by Erdödy family that beared their second attribute de Monoszlo. The magpie is said to symbolize labor towards richness. (Actually only the shield of Csupors is used with changed crest, but going into those details would lead us to far. Erdödy family was important family in many other parts of Croatia (and Hungary), and their arms are reflected in moders symbols thoughout the region, just to mentioned Varazdin County and issuant deer from a wheel)

1995 (?) Proposal


by Zeljko Heimer


by Zeljko Heimer

The previously reported flag is probably a proposal, latter adopted to conform with the national regulations regarding the municipal symbols. The coat of arms was with a purpure field, porbably chnaged since purpure is not among the allowed colours in regulations for coat of arms. The flag, recorded only vertically, had red stripe near hoist, which was removed, presumably to conform the requirement that the civic flags should be of monocoloured fields.

Regarding the previously used flag in mid-1990's, I have received new info that corrects it - as I said back then, the exact design was uncertain. Namely the photo I got from 1998 did not show the fly (i.e. lower part of a vertical flag).
In the mean time I recevied further photos (Photo from opening of 10th wine exhibition Kutina, 22-27.05.2002, flags used on the City Assembly Building in Kutina on <www.kutina.hr>. about the same time.) show the flag red-white-blue, with the large white stripe.
