Flag of Lovinac - Image by Željko Heimer, 25 April 2010
The municipality of Lovinac (1,096 inhabitants in 2001, 288 in the village of Lovinac) is located about 30 km south- east of Gospić. However, with the passage of the new highway built in the first years of the third millenium with the Sveti Rok tunnel passing through the Velebit mountains towards the sea, the municipality received a new vigorous life. The commercial use of the natural spring waters from Sveti Rok gave an other important boost to the development of the region.

The symbols of Lovinac are prescribed by Decision Odluka o grbu i zastavi Općine Lovinac, adopted on 7 November 2003 by the Municipality Assembly.
The symbols were designed by the Heraldic Art d.o.o. company, from Rijeka, and approved on 2 June 2005 by the Ministry of Administration.
The flag (photo) is in proportions 1:2, white with the coat of arms, bordered yellow, in the middle.
