Municipal flag of Plasnica

The flag elements and colours seem to have been derived from the municipal coat of arms, whose upper part is charged with a yellow crescent (symbolizing the Turkish population?) pointing upwards surmounted by a red star outlined in yellow (therefore similar to the star of Socialist Yugoslavia and Socialist Macedonia) and placed over a red disk.
The flag is shown as vertical on the Macedonian Ministry of Local Self-Government website (first version, page no longer online), and as horizontal on the Macedonian Ministry of Local Self-Government website (second version, page no longer online, either).
