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 Proložac (today Proložac) 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.
