Tisno is a community in the Sibenik-Knin County, some 20 km

both coasts of a narrow chanel between the coast and Murther
island with a risable bridge between. The name itself means more
or less "narrow place". The coat of arms of
Tisno is azure over a sword argent hilted or feswise pointing to
sinister a cloak gules. The charges refer to St. Martin.

On the flag I have no info, I suspect that it may be dark blue with the Coat of Arms in the middle (judging from the background of the road sign), but a confirmation should be obtained before I draw it.

It may be interesting to note that this act does not include the wording that "the previous deficiencies has beer corrected" which seems to be more or less standard part of these acts otherwise, one may presume that the design was acceptable by the Ministry standards right from the begining.
