Presentation of the municipality

Nova Gorica, the city that was built on the Slovenian side of border after the division from part of the city that was given to Italy (Gorizia), was formerly known as Austrian city of Görz.

Description of the flag

The flag is light blue with a stylized red rose in the canton. I guess the flag proportion is 1:2 like for the Slovenian flag.

Coat of arms

[Coat of arms of Nova Gorica]by Zeljko Heimer

According to Banderas municipales de Eslovenia, published in Banderas [ban] #58 (March 1996), Nova Gorica adopted on 10 November 1980 a coat of arms, white with a red rose, symbolical for the city nickname 'city of roses'. 
Such a coat of arms had been in use since about 1965, and had also light blue border, which made the field of the former flag (i.e. the flag was light blue, with white coat of arms with rose).

Other variations of the flag were reported, e.g. white with a thin blue outline of the coat of arms.
