I have bought a book: Csa'ki, Imre: A magyar kira'lysa'g va'rmegyéinek ci'merei a XVIII-XIX. sza'zadban, Corvina, Budapest, 1995 , in which are shown (one big coat of arms in each page!) all the coats of arms of the counties of the Hungarian part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in the XVIII. and XIX. centuries.
« Veröce va'rmegye » [Virovitica county]: Polish like shield, tierced in fess: 1- gules a six-pointed star or; 2- argent a broad fess vert on which is a running marten natural; 3- gules an anchor argent and brown per bend. The supporters are: dexter an eagle regardant sable beaked or, tongued gules; sinister a lion regardant or tongued gules. The shield is sumounted by a royal crown or. The whole is on a board.

Without supporters, used today for Virovitica-Podravina county.

The CoA is highly probable is the same as the historical CoA of the County of Virovitica (see ) red with green stripe bordered yellow witn running marten proper, and with a yellow star in the red field above and an anchor proper diagonally set in the red field below (to keep the description simple). Such CoA (not in "baroque" style as on my mentioned page, but only a simple shield, as expected) is published several times in "Globus" .

I know only their CoA, also from the TV-news.
Janko Ehrlich Zdvorak, 22 June 1999

The coat of arms of Virovitica is the traditional coat of arms of the city Gules, on a Mount Vert a Lion rampant Or, holding in dexter a Sabre Argent hilted Or above his head. The flag is white with the coat of arms in the middle. Adopted: around 1995 (?)
