Municipal flag of Slovenska Bistrica

The flag of Slovenska Bistrica (29,688 inhabitants) must be one of the oldest Slovenian local flags still in use unchanged, or at least without a new legal document which would redefine it.

The coat of arms and flag were prescribed by decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi občine Slovenska Bistrica, adopted on 27 June 1984, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije 23/1984 on 13 July 1984, with effect on 20 July 1984.

The flag is rectangular, in proportion 1:2, horizontally divided white-red with the coat of arms in the middle. The coat of arms is always upright (i.e., there is a different vertical banner).

The coat of arms of Slovenska Bistrica is red with a silver embattled wall with five embattlments, behind which are rising three silver towers. The middle tower is wider and taller, topped with three embattlements and having a roman bifora (double arched window). The outer towers have a red conical roof under which there are three galleries, and with a golden knob on the top. In the wall are three red doorways, the middle being larger.

The decision prescribes that above the shield there is an inscription with the municipality full name in capital letters.
