Dobrinj is a community with about 2000 inhabitants on eastern
part Krk island opposing the city of Crikvenica on the coast. The
coat of arms of Dobrinj: azure Justitia clead and blindfoled
argent holding in the dexter arm an upright sword proper and in
the sinister golden scales standing on a green mound.
I am not aware of the historical background for this coat of arms though I guess that there may be some.
There is little doubt that there is a flag to go with it, but unfortunately - no info.

I received mail from Robert Grubisa from Rijeka informing me
on the flag. Here is translation sumarized:
Dobrinj - The flag is white with the coat of arms in the middle. The CoA is used on various information boards and similar in the community, but it seems that it is not yet approved by the Ministry. The flag is apparently not used (yet?).
