Presentation of the municipality

Description of the flag

The flag and arms of Brezice are prescribed by decision Odlok o simbolih Obcine Brezice, adopted on 3 February 1997. This decision superseded the 1991 decision on the coat of arms, but it does repeat it regarding the coat of arms in minute detail.

Unlike most other flags of Slovenia, the flag of Brezicee does not bear the municipal coat of arms on it but the municipal emblem. This emblem pictures the city water-tower and wavy lines of relief. The emblem is coloured in blue, yellow and green. Below the emblem is the logotype Obcina Brezice. The emblem and the logotype are copyrighted and registered trademarks.

The decision explicitely prescribes the proportions of the flag as 1:3, but the flag pictured in the attachment to the decision is 2:5. A version without the writings is also prescribed, as well as variations in the field colours: basically, the field colour is white, but need not be. However, the other variants are prescribed with vague reference: "colour variants of the flag field deducted from the basic colours of the emblem".

Coat of arms

[Coat of arms of Brezice]by Zeljko Heimer

The coat of arms is prescribed by decision Odlok o grbu obcine Brezic, adopted on 9 December1991, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije nr. 31, 20 December 1991 pp.1291-2.

This coat of arms is based on the coat of arms of the city of Brezice granted in 1501 by King Maximilian.

The coat of arms could be blazoned like:

Sable, a pile inverted enarched, in base of a triple mount vert in base azure wavy.

The blue is very light - "lazurit" blue according to the decision.
