Presentation of Dravograd

As the name of the city indicates it, the city (grad) of Dravograd (8,708 inhabitants) is situated on river Drava (Drau), near the point where it flows from Austria into Slovenia, in the Slovenian part of Carinthia (Koroška; German, Kärtnen).

Municipal flag of Dravograd

The flag and coat of arms of Dravograd are prescribed by decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi občine Dravograd, adopted in 1996 and published in the local official gazette Medobčinski uradni vestnik stajerske in Koroške regije, 4/96.

The flag is described in the new municipal statutes, published in 1999 in the local official gazette Medobčinski uradni vestnik stajerske in Koroške regije, 115/99. The only change from the former flag is apparently in the proportion, now 1:2. I suspect that the 1996 legislation already prescribed the change, and that the new statutes just repeated it.

Coat of arms of Dravograd

[Coat of arms of Dravograd]by Željko Heimer

The coat of arms is in shape of semicircular shield (width:height = 1:square root of 2), blue with the paschal lamb on green mount carrying a red flag with a white cross. The colours are not explicitely mentioned in the decision.

The paschal lamb comes from a seal of the market town of Dravograd dated 1575.

Horizontal flag of Dravograd

[Former horizontal flag]by Željko Heimer

Banderas municipales de Eslovenia, published in Banderas [ban] #58 (March 1996), gives a horizontal flag, in proportion 1:2, with the coat of arms offset to the hoist. The coat of arms is given in shape as used on license plates, and the adoption date there matches the date of the aforementioned decision. However, the horizontal flag can be seen on the municipal website, this time with the right shape of the shield (though, whitout the black outline), but now in the center of the flag.
Anyway, it seems that the horizontal flag is still used, at least unofficially.

Former flag of Dravograd

[Former flag]by Željko Heimer

The flag and coat of arms are prescribed by decision Odlok o dopolnitvi Statuta občine Dravograd, adopted on 26 March 1992 and published in Medobčinski uradni vestnik (Intermunicipal official gazette), nr. 7/XXVII, 10 April 1992. with effect on the same day.

Both the coat of arms and the flag are given a detailed geometrical construction based on the golden number (and therefore the unusual proportions).

The flag is red, vertical, in proportion 1:square root of 5, with the coat of arms in the lower part. The vertical position of the coat of arms is determined by a rather complicated geometrical construction. The width of the coat of arms is 2/5 of the hoist.

Moreover, the decision allows the municipal assembly to determine the colour patterns and use of the flag in more details, and it would not be impossible to learn that such an other decision was adopted after 1992.
