Prelog is a city some 10 km east of Cakovec, down the Drava river. There is about 8,000 inhabitants in the area, just over the hlaf of it lives in the town itself. The community was granted city status in 1997.
The coat of arms is almost certainly a historical one, but unfortunately I have no data to confirm it. It is azure a tower issuant argent between two mullets or. The flag is dark blue with the golden bordered coat of arms in the middle.

I received info on an error that crept in my reports on the flag of Prelog, namely the coat of arms is not set in the mdidle, but it is off-set to hoist and towards top.   If one take a better look at the several photos on the city web site at <>. it should be confirmed that the off-set version is used - although it seems that in all photos the Coat of Arms is bearly visible, they are mostly winded around the pole or obscured by people standing infront of it. Maybe the best photo to show the flag is <> though even that is not what we would like to have.
