Municipal flag of Ljutomer

The coat of arms and the flag of Ljutomerare prescribed by decision Odlok o simbolih Občine Ljutomer, adopted on 28 May 1997 and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije 39/1997 on 30 June 1997, with effect on 14 July 1997.

The decision was amended by Odlok o spremembah in dopolnitvah odloka o simbolih Občine Ljutomer, adopted on 3 August 2001 and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 94/2001. The amendment to the decision does not change anything in particular regarding the coat of arms and the flag, but introduces other, new symbols. These new symbols are the key of the townhall, the Mayor's chain, symbols of municipal officials and the municipal diploma. All of them include the coat of arms, and some of them a stylized municipal flag.

The flag is rectangular, in ratio 1:3, horizontally divided white-green with the coat of arms in the middle. The width of the coat of arms is 3/5 of the hoist size.

Coat of arms of Ljutomer

[Coat of arms of Ljutomer]by Željko Heimer

The coat of arms can be blazoned as:

Argent, an unicorn rampant maroon over a dragon vert langued gules, in chief sinister three balls gules two and one.

The shield is semicircular, lined with a double black line, and all elements are black-lined as well. The colours are determined as following (Pantone system):

The symbolic of the unicorn and dragon is, I guess, connected with the struggle of good and evil, though I do not know the story behind this. I tend to believe that the coat of arms is based on some medieval coat of arms, or seal, and it was in use at least from the 1970s in this shape (or very similar), as I recall having a pin with it in my childhood collection, long lost now.

The flag can be hoisted vertically, in which case the coat of arms is rotated to vertical position as well, with its width still 3/5 of the hoist size.
