Velika Gorica gained the status of a city in the new territorial division of the Republic of Croatia in 1995. The coat of arms and the flag of Velika Gorica are adopted on 22 July 1997: Sabre, oxen rampant Argent holding in forelegs a house of the second roofed Gules. In chief, sinister a crescent of the second, dexter three mullets Or one above two.
The extinct kind of oxen Tur (Bos primigenius) gave name to Turopolje - a wide plain which the city covers today. The building in its forelegs is the town hall of Turopolje (today a museum), of the medieval Noble community of Turopolje. The crescent and stars are taken from the coat of arms of the Community. The red colour of the flag is chosen as the traditional colour of the Turopolje noblemen.
