Yellow flag with coat of arms - white shield with red cross, bordered black. I am not quite sure if black lines are part of the design, but they were so prominent on the flag I saw that I added them in my image, too. Althought the flag maybe doesn't look special as drawn, I can tell you it is very good sight to see it flying. It make good contrast with stone houses and green mediterrainean vegetation. Vodnjan is community in southern central Istria, withous sea access (and therfore not so turistically exponated). However, it was one rather important place, before port of Pula was heavily build by Austria-Hungary. As it is usual in Istrian places with considerable amount of Italian population, in Vodnjan (or Dignano in Italian) is displayied Italian flag too. The proper arrangement is in the middle the Croatian flag, to observers left the community flag and to observers right Italian flag.

The community of Vodnjan (Dignano) has Argent a cross Gules, COA in shape very similar to the one of Pula. On flag it is outlined in black on yellow field
