The flag and coat of arms of the Municipality of Belica in Medjimurska county, Croatia, are presented at <>.
Valentin Poposki, 20 August 2006

As Valentin noted, the local newspapers include the drawings of the flag and coat of arms of Belica. What Valentin failed to note is that these symbols have not yet been adopted, they are only proposals at this state, even though it is stated in the text that no obstruction for their adoption is expected.
The proposed coat of arms of Belica is: vert three potato flowers argent seeded or. Potato is among the most important of the agricultural products of Medimurje. The proposed flag is green with the coat of arms bordered yellow in the middle.
The symbols were determined by the community government and yet have to be adopted by the assembly, although reportedly "there are no issues about it".
Željko Heimer, 26 August 2006

The symbols are formally adopted on 22 August 2006. The document adopting them is issued in the official gazette: Odluka o grbu i zastavi Opcine Belica, 22. kolovoza 2006, Službeni glasnik Medimurske županije, br. 9/06, 31.08.2006.
Belica is a community in the Medimurje County, 7 km north-east of Cakovec, in the very middle of the county, with 3,500 inhabitants, 2,500 in the village of the same name. It may not come as a surprise that the Association of the potato growers of Medimurje is seated in Belica.
