Flag of Lipovljani - Image by Željko Heimer, 16 December 2006
The municipality of Lipovljani (4,101 inhabitants in 2001, 2,777 in the village of Lipovljani) is located 65 km east of Sisak. The municipality has rather large minorities of Ukrainians (4,32%), Slovaks (3,00%) and Czechs (2,44%) and also a relatively large percentage of Greek Catholics (3,85%).
In the last half of the 20th century, the place was probably most well-known as the ending station of the modern highway that was being built from Zagreb to Belgrade - the point where the highway "stopped" for some decades.

Coat of arms of Lipovljani - Image by Željko Heimer, 3 July 2004
The coat of arms of Lipovljani is: "Or a linden leaf issuant from a wall masoned and embattled gules in base".
The linden leaf makes the arms canting (lipa, "a linden tree").
The wall represents the medieval fort of Kraljeva Velika. Erected in the 13th century by Peter Veliković, the fort was known as Velica Regalis. It changed owners, mostly always important historical figures, througout the 15th and 16th century, as an important strategic place.
