Local Comittees, City Quarters and Municipal Districts

Mjesni odbori, gradske četvrti i gradski kotarevi

The cities and communities in the Republic of Croatia may establish local committes as form of direct decision-making of citizens in local affairs. A local committee is estabished for a single settlement, for several interconnected smaller settlements or for a part of a larger settlement, i.e. a city, which makes a separate delimited unit (part of a settlement) in regard to the other parts. City quarters or municipal districts may be established in the cities as special form of local self-governemnt. The local committees, the city quarters and the municipal districts are legal persons. The Law does not provide for the adoption of coats of arms or flags for these forms of seolf-governmnet, but it does not forbid it either. Some local committees, city quarters and municipal districts have adopted or use their symbols. These symbols are not regulated by the law or the regulations and are not subject to the procedure of approval by the central state government bodies.

[Vrana] [Normal] 1:2 [State Flag] [Vrana]
Adopted: 12th February 2011
Design: Heraldik art d.o.o. Rijeka
Description of arms: Blazon grba Mjesnog odbora Vrane čine: 1. Štit: rasčetvoren; 1 . Na srebrnom crveni križ Templara. Godine 1136. Sveta stolica dodjeljuje samostan u Vrani Templarima te je poglavar hrvatskih Templara - prior imao sijelo u Vrani, Hrvatska se templarska pokrajina prozvala Vranski priorat, te tim crveni križ simbolizira prisutnost templara u Vrani. 2 . Na crvenom starohrvatska kruna. Starohrvatska kruna simbolizira krunu Hrvatskog kralja Dmitra Zvonimira koji dan, 14. listopada 1075. godine, prilikom krunidbe u Solinu daruje i ustupa, za sva vremena, benediktinski samostan Sv. Grgura u Vrani s cijelom riznicom i sa svim njegovim pokretnim i nepokretnim dobrima u vlasništvo Svete stolice. Također kruna simbolizira čuvanje u Vrani znakova kraljevskog dostojanstva (kruna) kojim su se služili papinski legati prilikom krunidbe hrvatskih i hrvatsko-ugarskih vladara. 3 . Na plavom papinska tijara. Papina tijara simbolizira Vranu kao dio petrova nasljeđa. Zvonimirovom darovnicom iz 1075. godine Vrana postaje dio Petrova nasljeđa ("patrimonium Petri") i služi kao prvo stalno diplomatsko sjedište u Hrvatskoj državi, koje objedinjuje funkciju nuncija i apostolskog upravitelja. Dio iz krunidbene zakletve Hrvatskog kralja Dmitra Zvonimira "…K tome poklanjam, ustupam i potvrđujem apostolskoj stolici samostan svetog Grgura, koji se zove Vrana, s cijelom njegovom riznicom, naime sa srebrnom škrinjicom u kojoj se nalaze ostaci svetog tijela spomenutog blaženog Grgura, s dva križa, s kaležom i pliticom, s dvije zlatne krune urešene draguljima, s knjigom evanđelja u srebru kao i sa svim njegovim pokretnim i nepokretnim dobrima, da bi zauvijek legatima sv. Petra služio kao gostinjac i bio trajno u njihovoj vlati, uz ovaj samo uvjet, da se ne predate nijednoj drugoj vlasti, nego da za sva vremena bude vlasništvo sv. Petra. Ja i moji nasljednici branit ćemo njegovu sloboštinu i sigurnost od svakog čovjeka…" Posebnom Papinskom uredbom ujedinjuje se titula Bana hrvatskog i priora Vranskog pa se na ovome mjestu u istoj osobi u doba glasovitoga Ivana Paližne koncentrira ogromna crkvena, politička i vojna moć. 4 . Na crnom srebrn križ Ivanovaca. Srebrn križ simbolizira Vranu kao sjedište ivanovečkog (Hospitalci) priorata (poglavarstva) za Hrvatsku i Ugarsku. Samostan u Vrani kao prvi i najugledniji među svima samostanima na području kraljevstva uživa pravo jurisdikcije na cijelom području hrvatsko-ugarskog "jezika", a prior Vranski postaje glavni prior ovoga reda na području cijelog kraljevstva. Banovi i kraljevi Hrvatske, Slavonije i Dalmacije su posebnom uredbom Pape imenovani i titulom Vranskog priora pa se na ovome mjestu u jednoj osobi koncentrira ogromna crkvena, politička i vojna moć. Najglasovitiji među priorima Vranskim su Ivan Paližna i Petar Berislavić (Trogiranin), čija se poprsja nalaze u prvostolnici zagrebačkoj. 2. Nakit: pet puta uvijen crvenosrebrn vijenac iz kojeg raste šaka s mačem praćen s dva crna krila 3. Plašt: crvenosrebrn 4. čuvari štita: desno: Sv. Mihovil - župa Vrane nosi naziv sv. Mihovil koji je ujedno i njen zaštitnik, u desnici drži podignut plameni mač, a u ljevoj vagu; Ljevo: Sv. Nediljica mučenica i zaštitnica Vrane, u ljevici drži palminu granu, pred njom zlatni ležeći lav. 5. Lenta s natpisom. Ispod grba se pruža lenta sa natpisom: u sredni VRANA, ljevo Sv. Nediljica i desno Sv. Mihovil. (Čl. 7, Odluka, 2011.)
