Flag of Šmartno ob Paki, horizontal and vertical versions - Images by Željko Heimer, 12 November 2012
The municipality of Šmartno ob Paki ("on [river] Paka"), formed in 1995, is one of the smallest municipalities in Slovenia by its area (2,818 inhabitants; 182 ha).
Željko Heimer, 25 March 2000
The flag and arms of Šmartno ob Paki are prescribed by Decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi Obćine Šmartno ob Paki (text), adopted on 28 October 1996 and published in the local official gazette Uradni vestnik Mestne obćine Velenje.
The flag is in proportions 1:2, transversally divided into
three equal panels, with the municipal coat of arms placed in the center of the central panel. The width of the coat of arms is 2/3 of the flag's width.
The Decision prescribes only the horizontal flag. However, vertical flags are used, as reported by Stanič & Jakopič [j2s05], and as table flags, with the coat of arms smaller than prescribed on the horizontal flag.
Blue represents river Paka whereas the white background increases the visibility of the coat of arms.
The official colour specifications are:
- Blue: HKS 46K;
- Red: HKS 23K.
