The first symbols of Čazma were prescribed by Decision Odluka o grbu i zastavi Općine Čazma, adopted on 3 July 1992 by the Municipality Assembly and published on 6 July 1992 in the official gazette Službeni vjesnik, No. 22.

The flag is described in Article 8 of the Decision, as follows:

The flag of the municipality of Čazma is composed of two colours: blue and red. The colours are set horizontally in this order: from the top two thirds of the colour blue and one third of the colour red, that is, its top right corner merges with the diagonal ending in the bottom right corner. At the right side of the flag in the blue field is set the coat of arms of the municipality of Čazma. The ratio of width to length of the flag is 1:2.

The Decision adopts the historical coat of arms as represented by Lašovski [lsv39], "Gules a church argent roofed azure".
