Municipal flag of Solčava

Stanič [stj05] writes that the symbols of Solčava were adopted in March 2000.

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, green with a thin white stripe dividing it in two parts, the field at hoist being square and containing the attribute from the coat of arms, three edelweiss flowers proper

Stanič gives the colour specifications as:

  • light yellow: Pantone 109
  • dark yellow: Pantone 1225
  • green: Pantone 355
  • blue: Pantone 300
  • red: Pantone 185
  • black: Pantone Black

The drawings of the flag provided by the designer, who surely provided the colour definitions to the municipality and who also provided his images to Stanič, include an other lighter shade of green for the parts of the edelweiss flower. This is not mentioned in the colour definition (not to mention that the flag definition forgets about black used for outlining the flowers).
