Presentation of the municipality

Koper is an important port in the "head of Istria" peninsula (hence the Italian name Capodistria). The municipality is bilingual. Its official name is Mestna obcina Koper - Commune Citta' di Capodistria.

Coat of arms

[Coat of arms of Koper]by Zeljko Heimer

In 1997 Koper adopted a new artistical redention of the coat of arms, based on a stone carving preserved in the city, but retaining the basic design of the previously used arms. The sun without the shield shape is called a symbol of the community.

Since the mid-1980s and until the new symbols were adopted, similar symbols were used, but the sun was rendered symbolically composed of eight curved elements.
