Zeljko Heimer, 27 January 2002

Description of the flag

The flag and coat of arms are prescribed by decision Odlok o grbu, zastavi in prazniku Obcine Rogatec, adopted on 11 July 1996. and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, nr. 43, 2. VIII. 1996, pp. 3766-8.

The symbols 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, vertically divided in white-red-white. In red field there is the attribute from the coat of arms - the roundel with the conical roof. The attribute is prescribed not to be lower then 2/3 of the hoist and not to be higher then 8/10.

The decision prescribes that the "details of the flag field ratios and the code of the flag colours are integral part of this decision", but these are not included in the official gazette text.
