Flag of Trogir - Image by Željko Heimer, 8 April 2001
The symbols of Trogir were designed by the Heraldic Art d.o.o. company, from Rijeka.
The flag is in proportions 1:2, white with the coat of arms in the middle.

Former flag of Trogir - Image by Željko Heimer, 5 October 2008
An ornamental flag was hoisted on the Kamerlengo fortress (photo, 2004).
The flag is a white gonfalon with rectangular tails with a square panel containing the elements from the coat of arms, blue with a white fortress issuing from the waves with four towers and a belfry, and the town's patron saint St. John Osorinus (St. John of Trau) standing at the doors, and with a shooting star in chief dexter and the coat of arms of the Republic of Croatia in sinister chief. With the adoption of the official flag, this flag would presumably be replaced, although it was still hoisted in 2004 at the Kamerlengo castle.
These arms, as well as the current arms are stylistic modernization of the old seal. Similar arms are shown in Lazsowski's Grbovi Jugoslavije [lsv39] (where he refers to Lind's Städte Wappen [lik85]), and in Ströhl (Städte-Wappen von Ö-U, 1904) [stl04], where two seals from the 14th century are described having similar contents.
St. John Osorinus or St. John of Trau was the first Bishop of Trogir in the 11th century, supporting the Croatian kings ruling the hinterland; he was buried in the St. Lwarence cathedral in Trogir, his day is celebrated on 16 November.
