Description of the flag

When the municipality of Lovrenc na Pohorju adopted its new coat of arms, the traditional symbols of the town of Lovrenc were not supressed. The historical coat of arms of was preserved and a banner to go with it was adopted. Those symbols are used in Lovrence together with the municipal symbols in many occasions.

The flag of the city of Lovrenc na Pohorju is prescribed by decision Odlok o istovetnostnih simbolih obcine Lovrenc na Pohorju , adopted on 1 June 2000 and published in the official local gazette Medobcinski uradni vestnik, 11/2000.

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 banner (prapor, as called in the aforementioned decision) is red with the coat of arms of the town in the middle set in a cartouche. Along the upper and lower edges of the flag, there is a floral ornament, and the full name of the town is inscribed in red on a yellow stripe in the middle of the flag The banner is prescribed in ratio 1:2, but the ratio 2:5 is allowed "when needed".

Or an arm issuant from a cloud azure issuant from dexter, clead argent and with a cuff gules adorned with a cross fleury argent, holding a grille sable.
