Bibinje is a community in the Zadar County on coast due south of Zadar, with some 3,700 inhabitants. as I mentioned about Sukosan, the community together with neighbouring Sukoaan maintains and a large yachting port, that makes it most reknown of.
As shown on Turisticka zajednica opcine Bibinje site and with info from Tomislav `ipek's personal observation, the coat of arms of Bibinje is Azure a staff or with a bag argent ensigned with escallop also or between a sabre argent handeled or and a cross also or.
The flag is light blue with the coat of arms bordered yellow in the middle.
The style of the Hraldik-art d.o.o. of Rijeka is more then obvious, so we could expect a ceremonial flag, too. I estimate that it was adopted around 1998.

In the latest number of the political magazine Globus (Globus - nacionalni tjednik, br. 737, Zagreb, 21. 01. 2005), there is a flag-unrelated article "Sanader pokorava Zadar" illustrated among others with a photo of the mayor of the community of Bibinje, Nino `imunic, photographed next to the ceremonial flag of the community. The ceremonial flag is a light blue gonfalon bordered golden with the coat of arms in the middle, the name of the community above in two arhces and branches of fig and olive beneath. The source does not show the bottom part, image is an assumed reconstruction - particularly considering the form of the tail and the bunch of grapes: with this last compare the flag of Primosten - it would not be the first example of ceremonial flags of various communities using exactly the same patterns. Hopefully, sooner or letter someone shall be able to confirm or deny this choice of mine.
