The coat of arms is a modernisation of the old arms of Sisak,
granted in XVIII century. The flag is quartered by a white cross
in blue and green, with the coat of arms in the middle. It is not
known if the design is approved by the Ministry of
Administration. Another flag - blue over green with thin white
stripe in between and coat of arms in the middle was also
reported - status unknown.
