13:20, by Stoyan Antonov
Plovdiv Municipality Council adopted the flag of Plovdiv on 29 August 1997 after the design of Gancho Ganchev, an artist. The ratio is 130:200 (64:72:64), fixed in cm. The height of the coat of Arms is 73, the length of the ribbon (?) 140. Pantone values are adopted as follows: blue 319, green 357, yellow 143, red 208, blue 286 (for the river), light green 344 (for lions? tongues and nails).

width="140" height="92">The coat-of-arms is much older than the flag. It has been changed several times, I believe, and the current form is the one that appears on our town's official website ( www.plovdiv.bg ). The coat-of-arms has a wavy stripe symbolizing the river Maritsa that flows through the town, and also the seven hills in the town. The text on the ribbon below reads - "Ancient and eternal".
