Description of the flag

The coat of arms and flag are prescribed by tdecision Odlok o grbu in zastavi Obcine Miklavz na Dravskem polju, adopted on1 June 2000, and published in the regional official gazette Medobcinski uradni vestnik, nr 12/2000, str. 311.
The text and images are available online.

The flag is of the same greenish field as in the coat of arms with the arms set in the middle, always hoisted vertically, in ratio 1:2.

This flag is explicity allowed to be used by the citizens of the municipality, so making it both the civil and government flag. Most of other Slovenian municipal flags are by default only to be used by the municipal authorities, that is they are government flags.
