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 Gola, 25. rujna 2001. Slubeni glasnik Koprivnicko-krievacke upanije, br. 10/01, god. IX, Koprivnica, 28. rujna 2001.
The coat of arms is: Vert within border or an oak leave argent in bend. The oak leave is said to represent the terittory of the community between Drava and state border towards Hungary, Gola being one of the rare places where Croatia speads on the other side of Drava on the whole its way between Medimure and Baranja. Green field and golden border stand for oak woods, pastures and corn fields of the region.
The flag is green with the coat of arms in the middle.
