The city of Kaštela is actually an aglomeration of seven smaller towns along the coast just north of Split, each being named Kašel with an additional attribute (Kaštel means, of course, castle or fort, Kaštela is the plural form).
The communities of Split, Solin and Kaštela formed the Civic Assembly of Communities of Split (Gradska zajednica opcina Split) until 1993. The emblem of the community of Kaštela was adopted some time in 1970's, and is basically the same as the one used nowdays (with the five-pointed star instead of the chequy shield at the top, most probably).
The emblem used nowdays is within a square frame a tower form whose central part is composed of seven different towers.
The flag of Kaštela is vertical, blue with the emblem in the middle and the name of the city below in two lines "GRAD KAŠTELA". Most probably nither the emblem nor the flag are approved by the Ministry of Administration.
