Presentation of Zagorje ob Savi

Zagorje ob Savi had municipality status before the 1990s. The attribute "ob Savi" means "on the river Sava". "Zagorje" is a general term for a place "behind hills", used also in the name of a region in Croatia (Krapinsko-Zagorska County) and possibly in some other place names in Slovenia.

Municipal flag of Zagorje ob Savi

The coat of arms and the flag of Zagorje ob Savi that must have been in use well before the 1990s are shown in Banderas municipales de Eslovenia, published in Banderas [ban] #58 (March 1996), refering to Uradni Vestnik Zabauja [Zasavja], 8/11 that I have not located, neither have I any other legal source regarding those symbols.

The flag of Zagorje is a banner of the arms, in proportion 1:2. It is divided from the chief sinister corner radiating in arches into four unequal fields, green, blue, black and white. It is said that the colours represent vegetation (green), river Sava (blue), coal mines (black) and bright future (white).

The strict heraldic view would deny this 'emblem' right to be called a coat of arms since it defies the proper blazon.

Former coat of arms of Zagorje ob Savi

[Coat of arms of Zagorje ob Savi]by Željko Heimer

The coat of arms of Zagorje ob Savi shown in Zalokar's book [zal90] pictures the symbols of people's liberation struggle in the Second World War (flames), of the Socialist revolution (star), of industry (cog-wheel) and of mining (hammers). It seems that the basic colour pattern (green, purple, black, white) of this coat of arms has provided the inspiration for the current coat of arms and flag.
