Flag and CoA of Staré Hory are on this website. Stare Hory is considered to be the oldest mining village in surrounding area of
Banska Bystrica. There had also been discoveries of old stone tools used for mining of the ore in the extracted mine waste. One of the most important stages of development was reached around the time between the 15th and 16th century. During this period, a large smeltering plant   was built, this in return, caused more development such as the lumbering of trees and the processing of coal. The village is situated at the Nizke Tatry and the Velka Fatra junction. The center of the village lies elevated at 472 meters above sea level. The village is well known for its production of beautifully styled lace embroideries, which lace merchants peddled from home to home all over the Austro-Hungarian region; their production and distribution in the village still prevails to this present time
