Adoption of the flag

Several proposals for new Croatian symbols were published in 1990, when Croatia was in the time of change from Soviet-style symbols to new, more oriented to its history and Western tradition. All proposals shown below were designed by individuals, independently from the government, at least at that time.
There was the obvious problem of confusion with the Dutch flag, if there would be just the star removed. However, the tradition of having the coat of arms in the middle was very strong. Emigrant societies in the world used the flag with the chequered shield, and many taught it was right to use the same design. There were some other propositions. Maybe the most radical was the chequered red and white flag, very much alike the one used for car racing. Others were simplifications of the tricolour with coat designs.

Finally, the design with the full coat of arms was preferred and made official. The author of the design is Miroslav Šutej, who also designed of the coat of arms, the President's flag, and some other State emblems.

As explained by Ljubičić in Vecernji list, 28 January 2000, the second flag is based on a synthesis of two historical elements, the tricolour and the Croatian coat of arms. The tricolour is a very frequent flag, and therefore, the coat of arms is the basic differential element. The economic, political, cultural and sports challenges of the new state require recognisable, effective and differential visual characteristics. The interchangeable squares already represent different contents: HRT (the Croatian national TV network), tourism, the Zagreb International Fair, and there is a need to link it with the basic, ceremonial, offical and unique identity of the state, that is its flag.
