Novi Vinodolski is a city of about 5000 inhabitants on the
coats facing the island of Krk. In 13th century it is ruled by
the County of Krk - Frankopans, one of the most prominent
Croatian noble family. The caslte built there by Frankopans is
shown in the CoA, just as the six-pointed star is inspired by the
Frankopan family coat of arms (per fess gules and or in the first
a mullet of the second). The coat of arms is: Azure a tower
argent embatteled massoned and with windows sable issuant from a
mullet or. The flag is blue with the coat of arms in the middle.

I received mail from Robert Grubisa from Rijeka informing me
on the flag. Here is translation sumarized:
Novi Vinodolski - The flag is light blue (same as the shade in the coat of arms) with the coat of arms in the middle. Information based on the flag seen on the city administration building in Novi Vinodolski.
Željko Heimer, 6 July 2003
The decision is: Odluka o grbu i zastavi Grada Novog
Vinodolskog, 18.06.1998, Slubene novine Primorsko-goranske
upanije, br. 14/98, 10.07.1998.
The flag is described to be "azure blue" (whatever this exactly means - based on the observation, the blue used is the same as the light blue used by some other flags). A ceremonial flag is not mentioned (nor reported), just as there is no description of the border around the coat of arms (and the flags used do not have one).

Robert grubia sent me photos of the flags hoisted on the
firefighters building in Novi Vinodolski, where the yellow border
around the coat of arms is clearly visible.

Here is an addition to flag related legislation from the site
of the official gazette of the County at <www.sn.pgz.hr>:
- Odluka o izmjenama Odluke o grbu i zastavi Grada Novog Vinodolskog, 05.06.2008, Slubene novine Primorsko-goranske upanije, br. 23, 20.06.2008.

Two decisions on amendments of the Novi Vinodolski coat of arms and flag decision of 1998. Both decisions change two wording of the article 14 and 15 of the 1998 decision, regarding the fines for misuse of the city symbols.

The 2009 Statutes repeats the 2001 prescriptions describing
the Coat of Arms and the flag. The previous 1993 Statutes do not
include their description.
