Flag of Ravne na Koroškem, horizontal and vertical versions - Images by Željko Heimer, 4 October 2002
The municipality of Ravne na Koroškem adopted in 1989 for coat of arms the old coat of arms of the city of Ravne, though in a modern artistic redention. Also, the flag was adopted to be bicolour based on the coat of arms. When in 1995 the newly created municipality was renamed Ravne-Prevalje, the symbols were retained, as well as when in 1998 the municipality of Prevaljeseceded, and the old name was restored, now for a territorially much smaller municipality.
The flag of Ravne na Koroškem is rectangular, in ratio 1:2, horizontally divided light blue-green, with the coat of arms in the middle. No vertical version is prescribed, though it is prescribed that the top of the coat of arms is ithe blue part of the flag, which may mean that in vertical hoisting it is not "rotated back".

Decision (1) was adopted on 8 November 1989, though it was
signed only on 11 April 1990. It came into effect eight days after
publication date in gazette, which is unknown. Decision (2)
abolished the former one, and it came in effect eight days after
publication, i.e., on 14 November 1995, though that did not
change anything of importance.
Decision (3), connected with the change in the municipality name, only repeats the previous decision. However, decision (4) gives provision for a vertical flag, with a rotated coat of arms.
The colour specifications are given in the 1999 Decision as follows:
Light green is for the border and hills, while dark green is for the tree; light blue is for the shield background and dark brown for all the lines and the tree trunk. The flag is light blue and light green.
