Municipal flag of Vuzenica - Image by Željko Heimer, 6 July 2005
The municipality of Vuzenica was formed in 1995. There is an important electrical power plant in Vuzenica on the river Drava.

The flag ans arms of Vueznica are prescribed by Decision Odlok o grbu Občine Vuzenica, published in the official local gazette Medobčinski uradni vestnik štajerske in Koroške regije, 8/2002.
Gogala [gog02] shows the flag as hoisted vertically, in proportions 2:1, yellow with the municipal coat of arms in the base above the name of the municipality.

Coat of arms of Vuzenica - Image by Željko Heimer, 10 April 2002
The coat of arms of Vuzenica is "Or atop an embattled city doorway with an embattled tower toped with a small roofed tower from which is hoisted a flag all argent".
This coat of arms was in use before the 1990s, and I have seen in (uncoloured, though) in the late 1980s. At that time Vuzenica had no municipal status, and that was the coat of arms of the small town that now forms the core of the municipality.
Stanič & Jakopič [j2s05] show the coat of arms from Pirchegger (1954) and Laszowsky (1934) books, in the first book having a green background and in the second a blue background with a somewhat different artistic representation of the tower, but basically the same elements are present and recognizable. None of the two books shows the small tower with the flag.
