Description of the flag

The municipality of Lasko, mostly known for the beer brewery there, officially adopted the coat of arms and flag only in 1998, even if it had been used long before that, and well known outside Lasko especially due to the beer caps.

The coat of arms and flag are prescribed by decision Odlok o zastavi in grbu Obcine Lasko, adopted on 6 May 1998, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, nr. 39, pp. 2906-8, 22 May 1998, with effect on 5 June1998) Unfortunately the decision in the official gazette does not show images, so the exact shape of the fleur-de-lys is not known.

The flag, that is always hoisted vertically, is a banner of arms, with the name of the municipality in base. The ratio of the flag is 74:180 (~2:5), with the top of the fleur-de-lys being 54 units from the top of the and their bottom 51 units from the bottom of the flag.
In base of the flag is inscription "Lasko" in Times New Roman font, in size of 13 units, distance from bottom 7.5 units, from both sides 13 units. The whole flag is bordered with silver.
The shade of the blue is given by naming percentages of different colours produced in Cinkarna Celje factory.
