Flag of Štrpce - Image by Ivan Sarajčić, 5 June 1999
Štrpce is a small municipality located in a valley surrounded by
high mountains in southeastern part of
Kosovo province. The municipality has an
absolute majority of Serbian population.
Štrpce must be a new municipality (according to the new administrative divisions from 1990), since the place of that name was part of the municipality of Uroševac before 1990. The place is on the road from Uroševac to Prizren.

The flag was designed by the Serbian Heraldry Society "White Eagle".
Dragomir Acović explains the design as follows:
The meaning of the flag is quite simple: the vertical stripes and the bottom one form the Cyrillic letter Š, as the initial of Štrpce, while the triangular motive alludes to the Šara Mountain. Red and white are the Serbian armorial colours.
