Dugo Selo is a city some 20 km due east from Zagreb (in County of Zagreb), and even if the name might indicate different (meaning is "Long Village"), it is a city, and it had such status at least in former Yugoslavia. In 1993 reform it lost such status for community (together with a number of other cities not "deserving" the "degradation"), but that was "corrected" in 1997.
About that time it seems that the new coat of arms was adopted, probably based on some previous, but I have not gained that info. In any case, the coat of arms is prominently shown on road signs on entrance to the city and on flags on civic buildings. It may be blazoned as: triangular shield Azure, issuant a Crozier Or, in chief dexter a Mullet of Six of the same, sinister a Crescent Argent.
According with the valid regulations requiering monocoloured flag for cities and communities, the flag is blue with the coat of arms in the middle.
Source: image of the Coat of Arms and flag sent to me by visitor of my pages, my notes, drawings and photos of road signs. Accuracy: fair.
