Description of the flag

The coat of arms and flag are prescribed by decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi Obcine Skocjan, adopted on 27 June1996, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, nr. 43, 2 August 1996, pp. 3768-9, with effect on16 August 1996.

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, divided in two, the hoist - one third of the flag is green with the attribute from the coat of arms, and the fly - horizontal triband of yellow, green and yellow.
The flag is vertical, the upper (hoist) third is green with the bridge from the coat of arms in the middle (set naturally horizontal in a vertical flag, reaching the vertical edges). The lowver two thirds are vertically striped in yellow-green-yellow.

[Variant of the flag of Skocjan]by Zeljko Heimer

While the prescribed flag design should have the bridge narrower then the square field, on the flags reported in use the bridge reaches the edges of the flag.

Coat of arms

[Coat of arms of Skocjan]by Zeljko Heimer

The coat of arms pictures the most famous building in Skocjan, the two-arched stone bridge over the Radulja creek, one of the three of that kind in Slovenia. 

The coat of arms can be blazoned as:

Divided per fess vert and azure fimbriated wavy argent, in chief on three pilons or a masoned two-arched bridge with stone fence broken off in three places.
