Novi Vinodolski is a city of about 5000 inhabitants on the coats facing the island of Krk. In 13th century it is ruled by the County of Krk - Frankopans, one of the most prominent Croatian noble family. The caslte built there by Frankopans is shown in the CoA, just as the six-pointed star is inspired by the Frankopan family coat of arms (per fess gules and or in the first a mullet of the second). The coat of arms is: Azure a tower argent embatteled massoned and with windows sable issuant from a mullet or. The flag is blue with the coat of arms in the middle.
