The theme of this work is the heraldic heritage of the Križevci-Kalnik region. The area of the cross-cultural and its respective micro-region along the town of Križevci includes one of the oldest settlements in the Northwestern part of Croatia as shown in the research case. The first part on this work contains a spatial time frame ranging from the middle ages to the early new age (between 12th-13th to 18th-19th centuries). Then it looks upon relevant historiography, following an overview of the history of the Town of Križevci and the entire Križevci County, with the necessary heraldic analysis of the mentioned places. Following this comes the basis of the entire work; an annotated list of noble families with an emphasis on the most important individual and a description of the coat of arms of each individual, respectively. Apart from noblemen, stone coats were explored, all accompanied by a brief description of the places and the times of their discoveries. In the final part of the work, the analysis of symbols represented on the coats of arms was conducted, and then there is attached statistics abouth the symbols that most often appeared in the Križevci-Kalnik area. With our work and previous research, we found that the area of the mentioned region was rich with large numbers of noble families to which certificates and privileges were given. Whereas in the study of stone coats, there was an exceptionally small presence noted.
