Presentation of the municipality

A short presentation of Milsinja can be found on the official municipal website (my translation):

The municipality of Milsinja existed during the Austrian empire period, during the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and also during the time of Federative People's Republic of Yugoslavia until year 1955. At that time larger communities were formed, and Mislinja was included in the Community of Slovenj Gradec. It reemerged in 1995. According to its area, it is one of the larger Slovenian municipalities with 112 sq km, it contains 11 inhabited places, 1265 house-numbers and 4511 inhabitants.

Flag description

The coat of arms and the flag are prescribed by decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi Obcine Mislinja adopted on 26 November1996, signed on 28 November 1996 and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije nr. 71, pp. 6147-8, 13 December1996, with effect on 27 December 1996.

The flag is rectangular in ratio 1:2. It is based on the elements of the coat of arms. The flag is always hoisted vertically, and it is a vertically divided blue with a sixpointed star and green with an eightleaved flower.

The decision in the official gazette does not include images, but there are images of the coat of arms and flag available on several webites, all being independent sources, as it seems from the general layout of images, which provide enough confidence for making the drawings. The official website of the municipality provides an image of the flag, too, though the flag shown there is 2:5, and not 1:2 as it is clearly stated in the decision that it should be.
