Former flag and emble of Domžale - Images by Željko Heimer, 3 January 2017
The former symbols of Domžale were prescribed by Decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi občine Domûale (text), adopted on 13 May 1980 and published on 14 May 1998 in Uradni vestnik Občine Domžale, No. 7.
The flag is red with the emblem in the centre, in height 2/3 of the flag's width.
The traditional strawware manufacture, initiated in the middle of the 19th century, is recalled by interwoven worker's hammers. While typically Socialist, this elements were certainly used as a source for the current coat of arms. The shape of the lower-case letter "d" is also included, as well as the full name of the municipality.
While the Decision describes the figure as "a fighter from the central monument to the fallen soldiers in Domžale", Zalokar [zal90] describes it as "a mountaineer and a circular track mark in the colours of the Slovenian tricolour".
