Flag of Omišalj - Image by Željko Heimer, 2 September 2003
Omišalj is a municipality developed around a small coastal town in the northern part of Krk Island, with 2,700 inhabitants. The Rijeka airport on Krk, the oil and gas terminal port and a oil refinery will preserve the municipality future, but tourism is not underdeveloped either.
