I like it.

We don't have a team that that plays in red in Cro, and you need to be as different from Dinamo as possible..

that's blasfemije, the Zagreb grb is blue and so is the cities colour, the red reminds me of Beograd and zvezda.
Red & white (white & red) reminds me of NK Orijent Rijeka, the Vatreni and Vfb Stuttgart.

I reckon its a good idea, too many teams have blue and/or white in HR. Also harks back to the pre WWII Zagreb derby between Gradjanski (blue) and HASK (red).

On the official site of Zagreb at <www.zagreb.hr> there are images of the Coat of Arms and the flag, and there is also link to the full text of the current Statute, text including the 1999 Statute and amendments of 2001 (which I don't kown if include any amendemns regarding the symbols): Statut Grada Zagreba, Službeni glasnik Grada Zagreba 19/99 Statutarna odluka o izmjenama i dopunama Statuta Grada Zagreba, Službeni glasnik Grada Zagreba 19/01 Statut Grada Zagreba (procišceni tekst), 19. 12. 2001
The article 8 determines the design of the Coat of Arms and the flag: "In blue field on a green hill a silver city with three towers and opened golden doors, in chief dexter a golden six-pointed star and in chief sinister a silver crescent. [...] The flag in ratio 1:2 is blue with the coat of arms in the middle bordered yellow."
Articles 9 and 10 determine the basic usage princilpes of the Coat of Arms and the flag, and articles 14 and 15 calls for the decision of the City Assembly about the details of the design layout and construction details etc. The statutes are signed by the chairman of the statutory commission, Dr. Dembitz.
I don't think that the 1999 Statutes actually introduced this particular design, but for now this is the best I have.
I belive that Janko showed this flag few years ago, possibly before 1999, but as I have noticed, it has been put in the public use only in 2002. Probably due to financial reasons, the flags were replaced only when the old ones (bought I believe in early 1990's, so dozen years old) became quite unsuitable for futher hoisting.

Following a visit to the Museum of the CIty of Zagreb (Muzej grada Zagreba - <www.mgz.hr>), I may add some details on the history of the Coat of Arms and the flag of Zagreb.
In XIXth century the usual background colour was red until 3rd August 1896 it was finally decided that it shold be blue: "Azure three tower argent on a massoned wall also argent with opened gates or, in dexter a mullet or and in siniter a crescent argent. Above the shield a massoned crown or." During the socialist period the crown was often replaced with a five-pointed star.
The flag was determined on 2nd June 1902 to be blue with the coat of arms in the middle, following the proposal by Branko Šenoa and Ivan pl. Bojnicic. Such flag was first manufactured in 1916 on for the crowning celebration of King Charles I in Budapest (and is preserved in the Zagreb Municipal Museum as well as the aquarel of the proposal).
Following the 15th April 1993 temporary Statutes, around 1997, the city of Zagreb adopted the new modernized artistic redention of the coat of arms based on the 1896 model, and finally prescribed the blue flag with these arms proper in the middle. As the current legislation regarding Coat of Arms require those cities that have historical Coat of Arms to adopt them in the same form as the historical examples, but only the shield, without any additional elements, the modern Coat of Arms of Zagreb does not include the crown.

For those of you that didnt know this:


Status of the City of Zagreb

Since 1997, the city of Zagreb is not part of the Zagreb County, but has special status equal to other counties (although it is still named "City of Zagreb" and not "County of City of Zagreb" or whatever, and it does not have the roman numeral as other counties have. So, the city of Zagreb is the 21st county of Croatia, although it is not named a county). This unusual status is reflected in flags as well - Zagreb uses monocoloured flags as prescribed for any other city in Croatia even if it has status of a county and one would expect a bicolour flag.

I think I noticed that the Legea logos on their sleeves were red as well. I'm not crazy about this new logo, but a change in the color of their shirts would be nice, too many white teams in the Cro league. It is hard to break with tradition though, and what would we call them, the Zagrebacki "crveni"??

It would be nice to resurrect HASK, I believe their kits were red shirt, white shorts, and blue socks like the trobojnica. The only problem with this is, would they have any supporters other than a couple of 100 year old dudes who are senile and peeing in their pants.
