The coat of arms is: "Vert a dove displayed argent in base two miner's hammers sable in saltire". The dove (in Croatian, golub, more correctly "a pigeon") is canting the place name and the two hammers remind the coal mines that brought prosperity to Golubovec even if they are now closed for over 30 years.

Ceremonial flag of Novi Golubovec

[Former flag]

The ceremonial flag, not mentioned in the Decision, which is not unusual, is a yellow gonfanon with three rectangular tails containing green oak ornaments, the coat of arms in the middle and the name of the municipality in green letters above. The use of green for lettering is quite unexpected, but matches the design nicely.
