Presentation of Bistrica ob Sotli

There is quite a number of places in Slovenia and other Slavic countries named Bistrica, so the attribute ob Sotli (on the river Sotla) is mandatory.

Municipal flag of Bistrica ob Sotli

The flag and arms of Bistrica ob Sotli are prescribed by decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi Občine Bistrica ob Sotli, adopted on 18 December 2000, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 6/2001.

The flag is rectangular, in proportion 2:1, yellow with a thin blue stripe in the middle, of width 1/40 of the hoist. In the middle there is, perpendicularly to the hoist, the coat of arms, half as wide as the hoist.
There is no special provision prescribing that the flag shall not be hoisted horizontally, though its design is obviously meant primarly for vertical hoisting.

In the middle of the white field there is a crown with three visible golden leafs and three blue oval stones, and with a blue cap, topped with an ornament of golden ball on which is standing a blue eagle ready to rise. Under the crown is a yellow field mantled with a blue royal cape.

Reconstruction from written sources

The table flag is similar to the flag for hoisting, but the blue vertical stripe ends at the half of its visible lower part, making space for the writing


and below the writings a blue stripe.
