Vinica is a community fortyish km west of Vara~din, about 4,000 inhabitants (1993). Even to a non-Slavic speaker the root of the place-name should be obvious and after looking at Coat of Arms even more so. The Coat of Arms is shown at County web site <www.varazdinska-zupanija.hr>: Azure a vine tree proper.

On <www.glasial.hr> one may found Statut Opcine Vinica, 19. rujna 2002, Slu~beni vjesnik Vara~dinske ~upanije, br. 19/02, 11. listopada 2002. The Statute describes the Coat of Arms and the flag that must have been adopted earlier (I estimate around 1995). The more proper blazon following the description in the statutes is: azure a vine tree vert with five bunches of grapes or.
The flag is blue with the coat of arms bordered yellow in the middle.
