The Town Statutes Statut Grada Ogulina, adopted on 29 June 2001 by the Town Assembly and published on 2 July 2001 in Glasnik Karlovačke županije, No. 16, include a reference to the Decision adopting the symbols. This is repeated in the consolidated Town Statutes Statut Grada Ogulina - pročišćeni tekst, adopted on 20 March 2006 by the Town Assembly and published on 30 March 2006 in Glasnik Karlovačke županije, No. 10, as well as in the current Town Statutes Status Grada Ogulina, adopted on 17 July 2009 by the Town Assembly and published on 28 July 2009 in Glasnik Karlovačke županije No. 25

The flag is described in Article 9 of the Decision as follows:

Red flag with the coat of arms of the Town in the middle.
The coat of arms is edged with a golden border.
The proportions of the flag are 1:2.

Coat of arms of Ogulin

[Town coat of arms]

The coat of arms is described in Article 7 of the Decision as follows:

In a red field two silver bars. In the chief of the shield a golden six-pointed Frankopan star. In base of the shield a golden Latin cross.
The original of the coat of arms is preserved in the State archives and the coats of arms are modelled after it.

The star originates from the coat of arms of the Frankopan family, owner of the local fort among other possessions.

Ceremonial flag of Ogulin

[Ceremonial flag]

The ceremonial flag is described in Article 10 of the Decision as follows:

Red flag with the coat of arms of the Town in the left top corner. To the right of the coat of arms is a silver fort with two symmetrical towers. To the left and the right of the fort are golden oak and linden branches. Above the fort is a silver outline of Klek. Above the outline of Klek is the inscription "Grad Ogulin" in golden letters. The flag is edged with a golden border.

The flag that is apparently used is different from the description of the ceremonial flag given in the Decision
Mount Klek is certainly a characteristic silhouette for the region, while oak and linden are important elements of the old Croatian symbolic, even from pre-Christian era.

Flag of the Ogulin Manufacturers' Association (1908)

The flag of the Ogulin Manufacturers' Association (photo) is shown on the town website. As it is obvious from the inscription, it is from year 1908; the caption says that this is the original flag of the association.
