Municipal flag of Tabor, horizontal and vertical versions - Images by Željko Heimer, 15 October 2002
The municipality of Tabor was formed in 1998 by secession from Žalec. The name of the main settlement after which the municipality is also named - Tabor - comes from the generic term tabor, meaning a fortified encircling wall. The wall after which it is named was built around around St. George's church as a protection against Turkish raids.
There was another municipality named Tabor, part of the Maribor Civic Municipality Assembly until 1995. Then it was incorporated into Maribor Civic Municipality.

The flag and arms of Tabor are prescribed by Decision Odlok o istovetnosti simbolih občine Tabor, adopted on 5 June 2000 and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 64/2000.
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 proportion 2:5, blue with two vertical stripes of white, the middle blue field being a square containing the bell and the St. George's ribbon from the coat of arms.
