Presentation of Kidričevo

Kidričevo is a small industrial city near Ptuj, formerly called Strnisce, renamed after Boris Kidrič, a Slovene Communist politician, one of the leaders of the Slovene anti-fascist struggle in Second World War, and the first president of People's Republic of Slovenia within Yugoslavia. The municipality of Kidričevo was formed in 1995 by secession from Ptuj.

Municipal flag of Kidričevo

The symbols of Kidričevo are prescribed by Decision (Odlok o grbu in zastavi Občine Kidričevo), adopted on 29 February 1996 and published in the local official gazette Uradni vestnik občin Ormož in Ptuj (Gorišnica, Kidričevo, Majsperk, Videm, Dornava), 7/96 on 7 March 1996, with effect on 22 March 1996.

The symbols were designed by Valt Jurečič of Heraldika d.o.o. and Heraldica Slovenica, who kindly provided drawings from which the images shown on this page were made.

The flag is rectangular, in ratio 2:5, vertically divided in three fields, the first and third are green and the middle one is square of white colour. It contains three green leaves (2+1).

The coat of arms of Kidričevo is:

Per pale argent and vert issuant from the partition line three leaves counterchanged, two in dexter and one in sinister.

The leaves are that of wild chestnut. In nature these leaves are in fact composed of seven leaflets, but it may well be simplified with five as on the design without loosing the identifablity. Valt mentioned that people did not even notice that two leaflets were missing.

Željko Heimer, 9 January 2002

But leaves of wild chestnuts do not all have seven leaflets. Most flora give 5-7 leaflets for wild chestnut.
