Description of the flag

The flag was provided by the municipal temporary statutes Statutarni sklep Obcine Loska dolina, adopted on 10 February1995, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 31/95, and by the definitive municipal statutes Statut Obcine Loska dolina, adopted on 20 May 1999, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 49/99.

The flag was prescribed by decision Odlok o simbolih, obcinskem prazniku in priznanjih v Obcini Lozka dolina, adopted on 30 March 2000, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 52/2000.

The flag is rectagular in ratio 2:1 (vertical), white, bordered with green and white squares along the three edges, with the coat of arms placed in the lower part of the flag. There is no horizontal flag prescribed.
However, the image in the attachement to the decision clearly shows the flag that is 11 green and white squares wide and 19 high. The squares are prescribed to be 2 x 2 cm (sic!), so that the pictured flag would be 22 x 38 cm. The prescriptions of the proportions of the coat of arms also differ between the text and the pictures. The image shown on the top of this page was made after the pictures rather than the text of the decision part.

Coat of arms

[Coat of arms]by Zeljko Heimer

The coat of arms of Loz dates back from 1477. It shows golden St. George slaying the dragon and on in chief dexter the Blessed Virgin, all on a blue background on green ground and hill to dexter. The modern municipality of Loska dolina reuses this coat of arms, as mentioned in the municipal statutes quoted above.
It seems that the rather rudimentary artistic redention of the shapes in the modern coat of arms is intented to remind the XVth century original coat of arms. Further details on the coat of arms are given in the aforementioned decision on flag and arms.
