Presentation of Moravče

The municipality of Moravče was formed in 1995, seceding from Domžale. The German name of Moravče was Liliemberg, so the coat of arms is canting (from Lilien-burg, the city of the lilly). As in many other cases, Slovene local names were not used officially until 1918, when they were gradually introduced, but mostly forbidden during the Second World War, to be again reintroduced in 1945.

Municipal flag of Moravče

According to Stanič [stj05], the flag and coat of arms of Moravče were adopted on 26 November 1977.

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 of Moravče is rectangular, in ratio 2:5, vertically divided blue-white-blue, the middle white field being square and containing the attributes from the coat of arms, that is the red tower from which is rising the fleur-de-lis.
