The city of Varaždinske Toplice, some 12 km SE of Varaždin, has history reaching the Ancient Roman period, when it was known as Aquae Isae and were known for its termal sumporic spas. It is not surprising that the health tourism is today the most important economy in the pitoresque little city. Since the administrative reorganization in 1992 until rehawl in 1997 Varaždinske Toplice was a community. Population: 7,200 (Zemljopisni atlas Republike Hrvatske", Školska knjiga, Zagreb 1993).
The symbols were determined with a decision mentioned in he new city statutes: Statut Grada Varaždinske Toplice, 25.09.2001, Službeni vjesnik Varaždinske županije, br. 17/2001. The decision is named: Odluka o grbu i zastavi Grada Varaždinske Toplice, but it gives no details when it was published and where (though I apresume it would be around 1997, in SVVŽ, too)
The coat of arms, as seen on the road signs and similar (by my observation and photos), is Azure a sea-lion or rampant langued and n armed gules holding in his dexter a castle argent roofed gules with a belfry. The flag is most certainly monocoloured with the coat of arms in the middle, but I have no yet confirmation on the field colour. (Possibly
