Presentation of the municipality

The municipality is well known by the mineral water sources and spa. It is so well known that the name of the mineral water (adjective form of the community name - Radenska) was a general usual name for mineral water probably in the whole former Yugoslavia. The symbol of the mineral water are three red hearts, but that commercial symbol was not used in the municipal symbols.

Flag description

The coat of arms and the flag are prescribed by decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi Obcine Radenci, adopted on 10 May 1997, signed on 13 May, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, nr. 31, 30 May 1997, pp. 2818-20, with effect on 13 June 1997.
Unfortunately, the Decision in the official gazette is not accompanied with drawings. My translation from the Decision follows:

The flag of the Municipality of Radenci is yellow and green, with the coat of arms axially set in both fields. The ratio of the height V against length L (V:L) is 1:2, so that the flag field is divided into yellow upper and green lower field, so that each of the two is 50% of total flag width.[...] In case of horizontal hoisting, the flag is made so that it is turned rectangularly on the horizontal line.
