Description of the flag

The coat of arms and flag of Komenda are displayed on the official community site. They are marked as "newly adopted" and the date of last update is 28 March 2000, so they may have been adopted just about that time.

The flag of Komenda is of a design characteristic of the Slovenian municipal flags. An cross of unusual shape is made of a combination of an horizontal division in three stripes and a vertical division in three unequal stripes, which is often known as Canadian pale. Therefore, the flag has four rectangles, one in each corner, while the main field forms an unusual wide cross. The vertical arm of the cross is square and bears some attribute from the coat of arms as a rule.
The flag overall ratio is 2:5.

The flag of Komenda has such a yellow cross on a red field. The lenghtwise stripe is thinner than in other examples of that cross pattern (e.g. Gornji Petrovci). In the square of the cross there is the attribute of the coat of arms, the red shield with the white Maltese cross, bordered gold and crowned with a black crown.
