Municipal flag of Trbovlje

The flag of Trbovlje was shown on TV Slovenia 1 on 17 May 2002. The flag was vertically displayed on a honourable place on the stage. The stage contained half a dozen of other vertically displayed flags of other Slovenian municipalities, and possibly some other flags, too.

The flag is 1:2 in ratio, derived from the coat of arms. It consists of a light blue field at the upper part and a green stripe along the lower edge, both being separated by a relatively thin black stripe that has a triangular "hatch" in the fly part.

Former coat of arms of Trbovlje

[Former arms of Trbovlje]by Željko Heimer

Zalokar's book [zal90] shows the former coat of arms of Trebovlje, that was obviously the inspiration for the current one.
The former coat of arms has a somewhat different shield with the chief white and the chimneys red. It also includes a red fist rising from the wagon and atop a red five-pointed star. All of this symbolizes mining, industry and the revolutionary past of Trbovlje.
