Flag of Mače

The symbols of Mače are prescribed by Decision Odluka o grbu i zastavi Općine Mače, adopted on 19 December 2003 by the Municipality Assembly and published on 12 March 2004 in the County official gazette Službeni glasnik Krapinsko-zagorske županije, No. 3.
The current Municipality Status Status Općine Mače, adopted on 6 July 2009 by the Municipality Assembly and published on 14 July 2009 in Službeni glasnik Krapinsko-zagorske županije, No. 14 (text), repeat the description of the symbols found in the preivous Statutes Status Općine Mače, adopted on 23 January 2006 by the Municipality Assembly and published on 25 January 2006 in Službeni glasnik Krapinsko-zagorske županije, No. 1.

The symbols were designed by the Heraldic Art d.o.o. company, from Rijeka.

The flag is in proportions 1:2, blue with the coat of arms, bordered yellow, in the middle.

Coat of arms of Mače

[Municipal coat of arms]

Coat of arms of Mače - Image by Željko Heimer, 6 February 2005

The coat of arms of Mače is "Azure a mount vert issuant from base pierced with a sword argent hilted or in bend with water pouring from the spot".
I very much doubt that there is any connection of the place name with the Croatian word for sword, mac that sounds quite similar, but it may very well be that the sword was chosen to cant it anyway. The region with numerous low tame hills surely gave rise to the use of the mount in the coat of arms, but I suspect that there may be some other interesting legend behind the symbolic. The spring water refers probably to Sutinske Toplice, a thermal spa in the vicinity.
