Flag of Jalžabet

The flag of Jalžabet, as displayed in the Assembly Hall of Varaždin County, is divided red and white by the raising diagonal, with the coat of arms set next to the hoist.
The symbols, designed by Krunoslav Čolo, a heraldic artist from Varaždin, were probably rejected by the Ministry of Administration and are in use unofficially.
