The municipality of Čavle (6,746 inhabitants, 1,248 in the village of Čavle) is located north-east of Rijeka. It includes the old fort of Grobnik and Grobničko polje (Grobnik Field) that is pictured in the 18th century coat of arms of Rijeka County, as well as in the current coat of arms of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, with the snow-capped mountain Platak behind it.

The symbols of Čavle are prescribed by Decision Odluka o grbu i zastavi Općine Čavle, adopted on 17 July 1997 by the Municipality Assembly and published on 1 August 1997 in the County official gazette Službene novine Županije primorsko-goranske, No. 16.
The Municipality Statutes Statut Općine Čavle, adopted on 27 September 2001 by the Municipality Assembly and published on 28 September 2001 in Službene novine Primorsko-goranske županije, No. 22, describe the symbols. The description is repeated in the current Statutes Statut Općine Čavle, adopted on 9 July 2009 by the Municipality Assembly and published on 10 July 2009 in Službene novine Primorsko-goranske županije, No. 25.
The symbols were designed by the Heraldic Art d.o.o. company, from Rijeka.
The flag is in proportions 1:2, yellow with the coat of arms in the middle.

Coat of arms of Čavle - Image by Željko Heimer, 6 December 2009
The coat of arms is "Gules, a spiked mace and a sabre in saltire both argent hilted or".
The sword and spiked mace are already shown above the Grobnik landscape in the aforementioned County's coat of arms dated 1786.
The original drawing of the arms by Heraldic Art shows the mace as full golden, while the mace is silver with a golden handle in Decisions and arms in actual use. The all-golden mace version was probably an earlier proposal, which was eventually superseded with the version in use.
