Description of the flag

The flag and arms of Zalec are prescribed in the successive municipal statutes Statutarni sklep Obcine Zalec, adopted on 17 February 1995, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 12/1995; Statut Obcine Zalec, adopted on 15 April 1999, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 37/1999; and Spremembe in dopolnitve statuta Obcine Zalec, adopted on 30 March 2000, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije 43/00.

In 1999, the flag was prescribed to have the coat of arms in the upper right corner, but this was already changed to the current design in 2000, and probably no such flag was ever made. In current design the flag is vertical in proportion 2:1, green with the coat of arms in the upper third of the flag with the blue stripe parallel to the flag upper edge.

Coat of arms

 

[Traditional coat of arms of Zalec]by Zeljko Heimer

The coat of arms of Zalec is a golden stylized hop fruit with a leaf in a green shield with blue chief fimbriated yellow. This emblem has been already used long before it was finally adopted as the coat of arms (e.g. in seals) and superseded the historical coat of arms of the town of Zalec then in use by the municipality.

Former coat of arms

[Former coat of arms of Zalec]by Zeljko Heimer

Before 1999 the municipality of Zalec used the traditional coat of arms of the town of Zalec as its own:

Gules a pair of wings sable in chief a rose argent barbed and seeded proper and in base a fleur de lis argent.

This, together with a matching flag of which details are unknown, were confirmed in the aforementioned1995 statutes.
