Description of the flag

The flag and coat of arms of Podvelka are prescribed by decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi Obcine Podvelka, adopted on 21 October 1999 and published in the official regional gazette Medobcinski uradni vestnik stajerske in Koroske regije, 36/1999.

The symbols were designed by Valt Jurecic of Heraldika d.o.o. and Heraldica Slovenica, who kindly provided drawings from which the images shown on this page were made.

The flag is rectangular in ratio 2:5, vertically divided red-white-red with the middle field being square and containing the tower and trees from the coat of arms.
