Crnomelj may have already adopted a flag and coat if arms before
the 1990s, but I have no definitive information on those.
In 1992 the flag and coat of arms were prescribed by decision Odlok o simbolov obcine Crnomelj, adopted on 25 March1992, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, nr. 18, pp. 1432, 10 April 1992. with effect on 18 April1992.
In 1996, the decision Odlok o simbolov obcine Crnomelj was adopted on 30 April1996, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, nr. 71, pp. 6088-9, 13 December1996, with effecton 21 December1996, superseding the previous Decision.
The new decision did not changeanything of importance but some minor procedural things regarding use rights and fine amounts for misuse.
The flag is rectangular in ratio 1:2, horizontally divided green-white-green, with the municipal coat of arms in the middle. The size of the coat of arms is 2/3 of flag height. The green is defined as light green. There is no mention of the vertical flag , but it seems that it is used, with thecoat of arms rotated upright.

The municipal coat of arms is the coat of arms of the city - black outlined in red, with a red city tower with doors opening, three windows in first floor and four "points" at the top. The base for this representation is a civic seal from 1587. In all the representations I have seen the shield was shaped in the form adapted for car licence plates, but it is possible that the official shape is somewhat different.
