- In the middle of the flag you'll find the Croatian coat of arms.
The main area of the coat of arms is a checkerboard that consists of 13 red and 12 silver (white) fields. The checkerboard has been a symbol of Croatian kings since at least the 10th Century. Above the checkerboard are five crowning coats which represent the historical regions from which Croatia originated.
