Municipal flag of Bohinj

The coat of arms and flag of Bohinj are prescribed by decision Odlok o grbu i zastavi Občine Bohinj, adopted on 15 June 1995 and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 44/1995, 28 June 1995.

The flag is in proportion 1:3, horizontally divided white-blue, with the coat of arms in the middle, whose size is prescribed to be 61 x 76 % of the hoist. There is no official interpretation of the flag colours, but I guess they are explained as snow-clad mountains above the lake.
The colours are prescribed as follows:

The coat of arms includes the most well-known landscape of Bohinj, the church of St. John (Sv. Janez) and the bridge at the drain of Bohinj lake, with mountain rising behind those. The blue triangle there is the sky, and the rest of the green area is a steep mountain slope. The shield is bordered black. The image shown above is based on the construction sheet from the official gazette.
