}upanja is a city in the Vukovar-Srijem County, 15,000 inhabitants, 12,000 in the city itself. It is located 30 km southwest of Vukovar, on the Sava river.
The emblems were adopted around 1995, highly probable without the approval of the Ministry of Administration.
The coat of arms of }upanja is quartered in three, the first one with the Croatian chequy field with the Church of Martirdom of St. Jonh the Baptist, the second white with a yellow and green oak leaf between two stumps. The base is divided with the tripple wattle, the blue field with the golden plogh and issuning from the bottom the golden ornament from the folk costumes. In the blue ribbon above is white inscription of the name of the city. Drawing, especially of the ornament is the base is "impresionistic" as I was working from a rather poor original.
The church was built in 1800 on he spot of the previous wooden church. The stump (Croatian panj) are canting for the city name, after the stumps left there after the clearing of the oak woods to make space for the city in 17th century.
The flag is white and light-blue bicolour vertically hoisted with the coat of arms set slightly towards the top.

I managed to get a copy of an article on the flags in the Vukovar-Srijem County [sal95]. Regarding the city of }upanja, the decision adopting the coat of arms on 30 June 1993: Odluka o grbu i zastavi grada }upanje, 30. lipnja 1993, Slu~beni vjesnik, br. 5, 24. studenog 1993.  
The coat of arms and the flag were designed by Ivan Herman, an academic painter from }upanja. The flag dimensions are 100x200 cm. The coat of arms is 50 cm from top, in dimensions 50x30 cm, being 35 cm from each vertical edge.
