Municipal flag of Škocjan

The coat of arms and flag of Škocjanare prescribed by Decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi Občine Škocjan, adopted on 27 June 1996 and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 43, 2 August 1996, pp. 3768-9, with effect on 16 August 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 vertical, in ratio 5:2. The upper (hoist) third is green with the bridge from the coat of arms in the middle (set naturally horizontal in a vertical flag, reaching the vertical edges). The lower two thirds are vertically striped in yellow-green-yellow.
While the prescribed flag design should have the bridge narrower then the square field, on the flags reported in use the bridge reaches the edges of the flag.
Stanič [stj05] shows the horizontal version of the flag while the Decision clearly states that the only acceptable flag should be vertical.

The colour specifications, not included in the Decision, are listed by Stanič as follows:

  • Yellow: CMYK 0-0-100-0
  • Dark yellow: CMYK 0-15-94-0
  • Green: CMYK 100-0-91-6
  • Blue: CMYK 100-56-0-0
  • Black: CMYK 0-0-0-100
