Đurić (1925-1996).

Flag of Velika Pisanica

The symbols of Velika Pisanica are prescribed by Decision Odluka o grbu i zastavi Općine Velika Pisanica, adopted on 27 February 2013 by the Municipality Assembly and published on 28 February 2013 in the Municipality official gazette Službeni glasnik Općine Velika Pisanica, No. 2 (text).
The symbols are described in the Municipality Statutes Statut Općine Velika Pisanica, adopted on 27 February 2013 and published on 3 April 2013 in Službeni glasnik Općine Velika Pisanica, No. 5 (text).

The symbols were designed by the Heraldic Art d.o.o. company, from Rijeka, and approved on 16 April 2014 by the Ministry of Administration / Central State Office for Administration.

The flag is prescribed in Article 6 of the Decision as "made in proportions 1:2 and coloured yellow. In the centre of the flag is the coat of arms of the municipality, edged with a white-silver outline. The total height of the coat of arms is 2/3 of the flag's width."
The flag is prescribed in Article 7 of the Statutes as "coloured yellow, in the centre of the flag, at the crossing point of the diagonals, there is the coat of arms of the municipality on both sides, edged with a golden/yellow outline."
The final approval by the Ministry of Administration confirms that the outline shall indeed be white.

Coat of arms of Velika Pisanica

[Arms]

The coat of arms is prescribed in Article 5 of the Decision as "a semi-circular shield shape. On a green background are three golden-yellow churches."
The coat of arms is prescribed in Article 7 of the Statutes as "In a semi-circular shield, on green three golden-yellow churches, placed 2 and 1." The final approval by the Ministry of Administration prescribes the coat of arms as "In a green field three churches (2, 1)". Compared with the rejected arms, the design was simplified and made compliant with the norms of heraldry: three symbolic, simple churches of equal design reaplced the three realistic representations of the churches in three different styles. The previously layout featuring the churches two over one in a semi-circular shield was replaced by one over two churches in a rectangular shield, aimed at better framing the charges.

The arms represent the three churches of Velika Pisanica (photos): the Catholic church of the Heart of Jesus, the Serbian Orthodox church of St. Lazarus the Righteous, and the church of the Reformed Christian (Calvinist) community. The towers of the churches are of equal size, highlighting equal importance, multiculturality and multiethnicity of the inhabitants of the municipality (municipal website).

The municipality organized a public contest (text) for the design of a coat of arms and flag, open until 30 August 2009. Decision Odluka o donošenju grba i službene zastave Općine Velika Pisanica, adopted on 21 September 2010, was, seemingly, not published in any official gazette and was invalidated by the 2013 Decision, following rejection of the proposed symbols by the Ministry of Administration.
