The coat of arms is a modernisation of the old arms of Sisak, granted in XVIII century. The flag is quartered by a white cross in blue and green, with the coat of arms in the middle. It is not known if the design is approved by the Ministry of Administration. Another flag - blue over green with thin white stripe in between and coat of arms in the middle was also reported - status unknown.
