Flag of Slovenj Gradec

The flag and the coat of arms of Slovenj Gradec are prescribed by Decision Odlok o grbu, zastavi in pecatu občine in mesta Slovenj Gradec, adopted on 25 July 1991 and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, No. 8, 8 August 1991, pp. 345-7, with effect on 15 August 1991.

The flag is described in the Decision as white, with a blue stripe along each of the longer edges of the flag, and with the coat of arms in the middle. Unfortunately neither the overall proportions, nor relative sizes of elements and position of the coat of arms are determined by the text, and it is only provided that "the construction sheet that pictures" things mentioned above "is integral part of this Decision". It is not explicitely stated if the flag should be hoist horizontally, vertically, or both.

Stanič & Jakopič [j2s05] show only the vertical version of the flag, with the white stripe twice wider than the blue ones and the coat of arms almost touching the blue stripes.

The coat of arms of Slovenj Gradec can be blazoned as "Azure, a city entrance with two watch towers argent grailed (if that is the word to describe the "chequy masonry" pattern) sable".
It is based on a seal of the town from the early 14th century.
