Gornja Radgona had the status of community before the 1990s. It is a town on the eastern end of the border with Austria. On the other side of the border there is an Austrian city called Bad Radkersburg, which is presumably the "Lower Radgona" ("Gornja" means "Upper").

The coat of arms and flag of Gornja Radgona is prescribed by Odlok o uporabi grba Obcine Gornja Radgona, adopted on 1 August 1996, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, nr 51, p. 4387, 13. November1996. Unfortunately, this decision does neither provide the description nor images of the coat of arms and flag. It refers to Uradni list Republike Slovenije nr. 60/95 for the Statute of the Municipality in which these are defined.
The coat of arms, as used on the car licence plates, and as shown on a postcard, is in shape of the "licence plate" shield, divided horizontally, with larger upper part, which is again divided per bend sinister, therefore giving three fields, from top to bottom (using quasi-blazon):
1. Or a sun of the same lined sable; 2. argent, a grape or; 3. argent, in base 5 bars wavy azure next to each other.

municipality was displayed in several different places. The flag is
horizontally divided yellow over green. It was not possible to see if
any emblem is added to the flag.
The choice of the colours is not straightforward, as the coat of arms is yellow, white and blue,
