Presentation of Zaprešić

Zaprešić was incorporated into the Town of Zagreb, as a Community, until 1993; in 1995, it gained the Town status.

Flag of Zaprešić

The symbols of Zaprešić are described in the Town Statutes Statut Grada Zaprešića, adopted on 14 July 2009 by the Town Assembly and published on 15 July 2009 in the Town official gazette Službeni novine Grada Zaprešića, No. 4. This repeats the descipriotn from the 2088 consolidated Statutes, which, I believe, include the same description as the 2001 Statutes, which in turn probably repeat the previous ones.

The flag is described as yellow with the coat of arms in the middle, in "height 1.6:1 to the length of the shorter side of the flag". If I interpret that correctly, it means that the height of the coat of arms is 62.5% of the flag width.
According to an unconfirmed story, the yellow colour of the flag was chosen as a reference to the papal flags, as the flag was being adopted in the time immediately following the visit of Pope John Paul II to Croatia in 1994.

The coat of arms of Zaprešić is "Quarterely azure and argent, a cross counterchanged".
The description in the Town Statutes is "a blue shield with a diagonally inverted white (silver) cross".
