Description of the page

Even though Sevnica (17,546 inhabitants) had municipality status before the 1990s, neither I nor Banderas municipales de Eslovenia, published in Banderas [ban] #58 (March 1996), found any coat of arms and flag in use back then.

It seems that the first official adoption of municipal symbols was prescribed by decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi Občine Sevnica, adopted on 27 March 1996, signed on 17 April 1996, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 23/1996, on 29 April 1996, with effect on 13 May 1996. The amendment Odlok o sprememba in dopolnitvah odloka o grbu in zastavi Občine Sevnica, adopted on 23 December 1997, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 1/1998, on 9 January 1998, presecribes who is signing the permissions to use the coat of arms and the flag, and does not change anything else.

The flag is vertical in ratio 1:3, white outlined in green (no specification on size of the outline, nor it is seen on the construction sheet, it may be that they meant a green fringe, or fringe-like rope). The lower edge of the flag is ending with four square points. The coat of arms is set in the middle of the horizontal line, 1/3 of the flag length from bottom.

The decision includes a detailed construction sheet regarding the masoned crown, the shield outline, and position of the inscription on the table flag. The colours are defined on the HKS scale :

Coat of arms of Sevnica

[Coat of arms of Sevnica]by Željko Heimer

The coat of arms is blue, from its green base is issuing a linden tree with a grey trunk, visible roots and green leaves. On the two lowest branches are sitting two birds (called in Slovenian poljski skrljanec ) turned outwards and looking towards the tree. The shield is topped with a silver masoned crown.

Table flag of Sevnica

[Table flag of Sevnica]by Željko Heimer

There is prescribed a special table flag, which is basically the same as the usual flag, but in ratio 1:2, with the coat of arms in the middle. Below the coat of arms is written Občina Sevnica (Municipality of Sevnica) in black letters following the shape of the shield. The decision prescribes the font as Unicorn bold.
