Pula (Pola, all these units have official names in Italian too) has vert a cross or shield of "nordic" type, the flag being banner-of-arms similar to discoloured Swedish flag. This is in opposition to the regulations that the flag should be of one colour with CoA in the middle.I do not know what is official status of that flag regarding to these regulations, but it is most certainly extensivly used in the city (including public buildings and local administration). After World War II the coat of arms of Pula with the cross was abandoned, and in its place it was used a blue shield with a white representation of the Arena of Pula. There are no data on a flag used in the preiod. In mid-1990's the historical arms of Pula was reintroduced.
