Presentation of the municipality

There is quite a number of places in Slovenia and other Slavic countries named Bistrica, so the attribute ob Sotli (on the river Sotla) is mandatory.

Description of the flag

The flag and arms are prescribed by decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi Obcine Bistrica ob Sotli, adopted on 18 December 2000, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, nr. 6, 2001.

The flag is rectangular in ratio 1:2, yellow with a thin blue stripe in the middle, of width 1/40 of the hoist. In the middle there is, perpendicularly to the hoist, the coat of arms, half as wide as the hoist.
There is no special provision prescribing that the flag shall not be hoisted horizontally, though its design is obviously meant primarly for vertical hoisting.

Coat of arms

[Coat of arms ]by Zeljko Heimer

The coat of arms is a shield of Renaissance shape. In the middle of the white field there is a crown with three visible golden leafs and three blue oval stones, and with a blue cap, topped with an ornament of golden ball on which is standing a blue eagle ready to rise. Under the crown is a yellow field mantled with a blue royal cape.

Table flag

[Table flag]by Zeljko Heimer

The table flag is similar to the flag for hoisting, but the blue vertical stripe ends at the half of its visible lower part, making space for the writings

ob Sotli

and below the writings a blue stripe.
