Flag of Benkovac - Image by Željko Heimer, 8 November 2009
Benkovac is located some 15 km inland south-east of Zadar. It was granted the Town status in 1997.
During the Serbian occupation, Benkovac was probably the second biggest town in the separatist Republic of Serbian Krajina. It was liberated in 1995.

The symbols of Benkovac (municipal website) are prescribed by Decision Odluka o grbu i zastavi Grada Benkovca, published in 1999 in the County official gazette Službeni glasnik Zadarske županije, No. 1.
