Novska is a city in Sisak-Mosavina County, some 10 km north of confluence of Una into Sava, somewhere on the historical border between historical Croatia proper and Slavonia.
The symbols must have been adopted about 1999, however since the on-line official gazette (<>) has issues from 2000 only, one can find only latter decisions. These are certianly interesting too: Statutarna odluka o grbu i zastavi Grada Novske, 5.07.2000. Slu~beni vjesnik, br. 9/00. Statut Grada Novske, 26.09.2001. Slu~beni vjesnik, br. 17/01
The symbols are very simply descirbed, and without the images from Grad Novska <>, I would be in doubt how to represent that correctly. My English translation of the blazon is (and is equally dificult to represent from blazon only): The coat of arms is gules a cross double parted argent. The flag is blue with the coat of arms bordered yellow in the middle.

Previous Coat of Arms

by Zeljko Heimer, 14 December 2002

Since about 1993 until the adoption of the above symbols Novska used an other coat of arms. If there was flag to go with it I was not avare of it. Tierced per fess, chief per pale, 1. chequy gules and argent, 2. azure three oak leaves and two accorns proper and 3. tierced in teine, azure and maroon fimbriated argent overall a stork proper.
This "complicated" coat of arms was probably rejected by the Ministry of Administration and the simple heraldic design was adopted in late 1990's. However, the CoA was extensivly used (on letterheads, promotive materials, web-site etc.). I am sure that it was also used (on marigin tabs) on one issue of the post stamps in 1990's, but I can't find which one it was.
