Flag of Drniš

The symbols of Drniš are prescribed by Decision Odluka o grbu i zastavi Grada Drniša, adopted by the Town Assembly on 14 August 2000 and published in the County official gazette Službeni vjesnik Šibensko-kninske županije.
The symbols are described in the current Town Statutes Statut Grada Drniša, adopted on 12 August 2009 by the Town Assembly and published on 18 December 2009 in Službeni vjesnik Šibensko-kninske županije, No. 15 (text), repeating the previous Statutes adopted in 2001.

The symbols were designed by Ante Filipović Grčić, a graphical designer from Šibenik, and Joško Zaninović, archeologist and director of the Drniš Town Museum.

Flag of the Drniš Workers' Society

The website of the Drniš Museum shows the flag (image) of the Workers' Society. It is a blue flag with golden lent, and oil-painted patron St. Roch. Around the saint is written in Croatian "Sveti Roko pokrivitelj radničkog Društva" (St. Roch the patron of the Workers' Society). On the other side of the flag is written "Sloga i Rad" (Unity and Work). The flag is damaged due to weather conditions since the bulding was damaged in war.
