Lokvicici (Lokvic^ic'i) is a community in the Split-Dalmatia
County, about 60 km east of Split,
relatively high above the sea (600-700 m), with just over 1,000
inhabitants in two villages. Just noth of Lokvicici are three
carst lakes (being carst holes filled with water, similar to the
much more famous Imotski Red and Blue lakes nearby). Until 1997
the area of Lokvicici was an exclave (territory that is
physically separated from the main part of the territory) of the
city of Imotski, when it was seceeded
and with part of the former community of Donji Proloac
(today Proloac) it was established as a separate community.
The coat of arms of Lokvicici is: Argent an eagle displayed gules beaked, armed and membered or and in the base three puddles azure, two over one. The puddles (Croatian lokve) are canting, and three of them probably refer to the three mentioned lakes. The flag is most probably also adopted, but I have no info as yet.
