Flag of Marčana

The flag of Marčana (TV images, HRT1 Dnevnik, 25 January 2009) is in proportions 1:2, light blue, with the coat of arms, bordered white, in the middle.
The argent bend of the coat of arms is made of a metallic shiny material, while the surrounding broder is simply white. The laurel leaves that are otherwise used to ornament the coat of arms are not used on the flag. This may have been done to fit the regulations of the central authorities that require historical coat of arms to be adopted as municipal coats of arms as the shield and its contents only, omitting all the ornamentations outside the shield.

Coat of arms of Marčana

[Municipality coat of arms]

The coat of arms (municipal website) is "Tierced in bend azure, argent and vert". It is surrounded with a golden laurel wreath.

This is, allegedly, the historical coat of arms of the old fortified town of Mutvoran around which the modern municipality developed. Such a coat of arms, in a differently shaped shield and without the wreath, and without indication of colours, is preserved as a stone carving above the gates of Mutvoran.
