Description of the flag

The flag and arms of Razkrizje are prescribed by decision Odlok o simbolih, prazniku in priznanjih Obcine Razkrizje, adopted on 27 June 2000 and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 76/2000.

The symbols were designed by Valt Jurecic of Heraldika d.o.o. and Heraldica Slovenica, who kindly provided drawings from which the images shown on this page were made.

The flag of Razkrizje 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. It can be easily shown that the corner rectangles should be 1/3 H x 3/4 H, H being the flag height.

The flag of Razkrizje has such a white cross on a blue field, with Ivan's source with hands from the coat of arms within an ornamental blue the central attribute.
