Presentation of the municipality

Hrpelje-Kozina was formed in 1995 by secession from the community of Sezana, and is located east of Trieste (Italy) on the Slovenian side of the border. As such, it is an important road-crossing (routes Ljubljana-Koper and Trieste-Rijeka [Croatia]), both for auto-transport and railroad. Hrpelje and Kozina are two towns divided by the railroad tracks.

Description of the flag

The flag and arms are prescribed by decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi Obcine Hrpelje-Kozina, adopted on 14 March 2002, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 30/2002.

The flag and arms of Hrpelje-Kozina were designed by Valt Jurecic of Heraldika d.o.o. and Heraldica Slovenica, who kindly provided drawings from which the images shown on this page were made.

The flag is rectangular in ratio 2:5. It is a banner of the municipal arms being, green with a white saltire and a wheel in the middle.

Coat of arms

[Coat of arms of Hrpelje-Kozina]by Zeljko Heimer

The coat of arms can be blazoned as:

Vert over a saltire argent a wheel sable.

The symbolism of the emblems is described in the aforementioned decision as standing for the prosperity of the areas of the municipality and the crossings of the important transport roads. The wheel stands for the roads, St. Andrew's cross for the geographic position of the municipality between three important northern Adriatic ports and railway and roads connecting them. The white is for the karst region (Mali Kras), the green for nature and mountains of Brkini and Cicarija.
