Presentation of Mislinja

A short presentation of Milsinja can be found on the official municipal website (my translation):

The municipality of Milsinja existed during the Austrian Empire period, during the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and also during the time of Federative People's Republic of Yugoslavia until year 1955. At that time larger communities were formed, and Mislinja was included in the community of Slovenj Gradec. It reemerged in 1995. According to its area, it is one of the largest Slovenian municipalities with 112 sq. km. It has 11 inhabited settlements, 1,265 houses and 4,511 inhabitants.

Municipal flag of Mislinja

The coat of arms and the flag of Mislinja are prescribed by decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi Občine Mislinja adopted on 26 November 1996, signed on 28 November 1996 and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije nr. 71, pp. 6147-8, 13 December 1996, with effect on 27 December 1996.

The flag is rectangular, in ratio 1:2. It is based on the elements of the coat of arms. The flag is always hoisted vertically, and it is a vertically divided blue with a six-pointed star and green with an eight-leaved flower.

The decision in the official gazette does not include images, but there are images of the coat of arms and flag available on several websites, all being independent sources, as it seems from the general layout of images, which provide enough confidence for making the drawings. The municipal website provides an image of the flag, too, though the flag shown there is 2:5, and not 1:2 as it is clearly stated in the decision that it should be.
Stanič [stj05] also shows the flag with ratio 2:5. Could this mean that while the flag is indeed presribed in ratio 1:2, it may actually be used in 2:5 ratio, similarly to most of the other municipal flags in Slovenia?

Coat of arms of Mislinja - Image by Željko Heimer, 6 January 2000

The coat of arms of Mislinja can be blazoned as:

Per fess enarched fimbriated and bordure argent, azure a mullet or, and vert a "huitfoil".

Stanič shows all the elements of the coat of arms bordered with a thin black line, while the star is further outlined with a thick black line. These lines are not present in his drawing of the flag.
