The official gazette of Koprivnica and Krievci County is
available on line at <www.glasila.hr>.
In the on-line numbers one can find descriptions of CoAs and
flags of communities, mainly in their statutes adopted in 2001
(after some non-flag related administrative changes requiering
adoption of new statutes). So, these statutes do not introduce
the symbols. Further on, not all new statutes describe the
symbols. Some only mention that there is some other decision
regarding the CoA and flag (sometimes quoting the titile,
sometimes not), and sometimes there is provision that such
decisions shall be made.
One of them is Statut Opcine Ferdinandovac, 28. rujna 2001. Slubeni glasnik Koprivnicko-krievacke upanije, br. 12/01, god. IX, Koprivnica, 11. listopada 2001.
The coat of arms is: Vert St. Ferdinand haloed and holding a flag and sword all or and in base a bar argent.
Of course, St. Ferdinand is the patron of Ferdinandovac. The bar in base represents river Drava, and green field around it stands for the fertile plains and rich oak woods of Ferdinandovac region.
The flag is green with yellow bordered coat of arms in the middle.
