Imotski is a city in the Split-Dalmatia County way inlands (well, there is no much way inlands there, after all) on the border towards Bosnia & Herzegovina, population about 12,000, some 4,000 in the city itself. It is located about 60 km almost due east of Split.
The Coat of Arms is historical and traditional and is to be seen in several artistic variaions: Azure a tower argent on mounts gules and in chief a mullet or and in base a crescent or.
I have found no info on flag as yet.

As Tomsilav Šipek noted, on <> there are several photos on which the flag is seen in the assembly hall.   The flag is vertically hoisted white flag with the Coat of Arms in the middle.
In the mean time I took the opportunity to check in the Lašovski book [lsv39]. He claims (and I see not reason to doubt it) that the Coat of Arms has been granted in 1890 by the Minister of Interior (I guess that was the usual practice back then). Also, Lašovski notes that prior to this Coat of Arms, Imotski used a Coat of Arms showing the depiction of St. Francis of Asizi.
