Municipal flag of Sežana

A picture on the municipal website of Sežana shows a table flag with a dark red field with the coat of arms of Sežana in the middle and the writing OBČINA SEŽANA below the coat of arms.

I believe that this flag is not specifically prescribed but is a de facto flag.

Coat of arms of Sežana

[Coat of arms of Sez<ana]by Željko Heimer

The municipality of Sežana has been using this emblem since at least the 1990s, apparently in different colour combinations. Earlier it seems that the emblem was silver on purple, but since the mid-1990s, a dark-red on white emblem has been prevailing.

The emblem is mentioned although not described in the municipal statutes Statut Občine Sežana, adopted on 20 April 1995, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 28/95. The new municipal statutes Statut Občine Sežana, adopted on 22 April 1999, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 40/99 says that the municipality has a coat of arms and a flag, to be prescribed in a further decision. However, such decision does not seem to have been adopted yet.

The emblem shows a pine-tree in the wind typical for the region and locally called kraska bura. The shape of the tree looks like the map of the community. The emblem was designed by two students in architecture from Ljubljana.
