Črnomelj may have already adopted a flag and coat of arms before the 1990s, but there is no definitive information on those.
In 1992 the flag and coat of arms were prescribed by decision Odlok o simbolov občine Črnomelj, adopted on 25 March 1992, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 18/1992, 10 April 1992. with effect on 18 April 1992.
In 1996, the decision Odlok o simbolov občine Črnomelj, adopted on 30 April 1996, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 71/1996, 13 December 1996, with effect on 21 December 1996, superseded the previous decision.
The new decision did not change anything but some minor procedural things regarding rights of use and fine amounts for misuse.
The flag is rectangular, in proportion 1:2, horizontally divided green-white-green, with the municipal coat of arms in the middle. The size of the coat of arms is 2/3 of flag height. The green is defined as light green. There is no mention of the vertical flag, but it seems that it is used, with the coat of arms rotated upright.

The municipal coat of arms of Črnomelj is the coat of arms of the city of Črnomelj - black outlined in red, with a red tower with doors opening, three windows in first floor and four crenels at the top. The base for this representation is a civic seal from 1587. In all the representations I have seen the shield was shaped in the form adapted for car license plates, but it is possible that the official shape is somewhat different.
