Description of the flag

Acording to the information from Banderas municipales de Eslovenia, published in Banderas [ban] #58 (March 1996), Tolmin adopted a coat of arms and flag on 28 January 1982.

The flag is light blue with the coat of arms in canton. It is not confirmed if the community retained the coat of arms and flag after independence either with or without any modifications.
