Municipal flag of Črnomelj - Image by Željko Heimer, 5 January 2006
Črnomelj may have already adopted a flag and coat of arms before
the 1990s, but there is no definitive information on those.
The flag and arms are prescribed by Decision Odlok o simbolih občine Črnomelj, adopted on 25 March 1992, and published on 10 April 1992 in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 18/1992, with effect on 18 April 1992.
Decision Odlok o simbolih občine Črnomelj, adopted on 30 April 1996, and published on 13 December 1996 in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 71/1996 with effect on 21 December 1996, superseded the previous Decision, but did not change anything but some minor procedural things regarding rights of use and penalties for misuse.
The Decision was amended by Odlok o spremembah in dopolnitvah Odloka o simbolih občine Črnomelj ((text), adopted on 11 June 2009 and published on 23 June 2009 in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 47/2009,
The flag is rectangular, in proportions 1:2, horizontally divided
green-white-green, with the municipal coat of arms
in the middle. The size of the coat of arms is 2/3 of the flag height.
The green is defined as light green. There is no mention of the
vertical flag, but it seems that it is used, with the coat of arms
The images of the flag and coat of arms were made after Stanič & Jakopič [j2s05].

Municipal coat of arms of Črnomelj - Image by Željko Heimer, 5 January 2006
The municipal coat of arms of Črnomelj is the coat of arms of the town of Črnomelj - black outlined in red, with a red tower with doors opening, three windows in first floor and four crenels at the top. The base for this representation is a civic seal from 1587. In all the representations I have seen the shield was shaped in the form adapted for car license plates, but it is possible that the official shape is somewhat different.
