The city of Stari Grad is on the Hvar island, about 40 km south of Split in the Split-Dalmatia County. It has under 3,000 inhabtants, less then 2,000 in the city itself. It should not be confuzed with Starigrad (Paklenica) in the Zadar county and an other Starigrad near Koprivnica, and therefore it is often referd to as "Stari Grad na Hvaru". Untill 1997 it had the community status.
The coat of arms pictures the city within walls and with three towers in blue shield on a green hill. This is a historical coat of arms, but until now I have not found anything firm about it previous history.
The flag is white with the yellow bordered coat of arms in the middle.
There is also the ceremonial flag, red three tailed gonfalon with the coat of arms in the middle, the name inscribed above in two arches and three different floral ornaments in three tails at the bottom - an olive, a vine and a figue.
As we have seen with some other cities using the white flag, the ceremonial flag do not follow the same colour for it base. Possibly due that the white ceremonial flag would be sustainable to stain to much? Or simply the golden ornaments would not stand out as good on the white...
