Municipal flag of Borovnica - Image by Željko Heimer, 31 December 2005
According to Stanič [stj05], the municipal symbols of Borovnica were already used when the current municipality was still a part of Vrhnika, from which it seceded in 1995.
The flag is light blue with the municipal coat of arms in the middle. Stanič shows the flag in ratio 1:2 but a drawing sent by the municipal administration in May 2003 shows it with ratio ~7:10.
The municipality of Borovnica is currently in the process of adopting new symbols.

Coats of arms of Borovnica - Image by Željko Heimer, 31 December 2005
The center of Borovnica is dominated by a column, that is the remains of the 500-m long masonry railway viaduct, which was considered among the greatest building achievements of the XIXth century. The coat of arms of Borovnica shows that column, as well as the silhouette of the former viaduct, which was bombed down in the Second World War.
