There is a map of the municipalities on the site of the Statistical Office of Republic of Slovenia. The 12 regions (Statisticna regija, Statistical regions) mentioned there are entirely for statistical purposes, and have no administrative meaning (and therefore no flags, certainly), though at least some of them may match historical regions. Those regions were suppressed in 2002.
In 1998, several new municipalities were created, and some other were changed. Some municipalities have now the title of "civic municipalities".
Zeljko Heimer 23 October 2002
There are 58 coats of arms that were "adopted" in 1993 to be used on car licence plates, some of which were latter changed. The plates are produced in company KIG in Ig. Basically these are those municipalities that have a Administrative Unit, i.e. an office authorized by the Ministry of Interior that deals with the juridical matters of state (identity cards, passports, habitat registration, car licences, driving licences etc.) Therefore the coats of arms (emblems) on licence plates are actually symbols of the administrative units and neither of the municipalities nor the towns.
To complicate the matter further, in with the end of year 1994 the number of municipalities was rised from 48 to 147, and in 1998 to its current number, 192. Currently there are ongoing procedures for further "crushing" of municipalities, and it is expected that in spring 2002 there shall be some 50 more. Some of them are made by secession from already small units.
Each municipality has right for its own symbol (that could also be
a coat of arms). Those municipalities that have in their capital city
also a seat of Administraitve Unit and that has changed their
original 1992 "coat of arms" of 1992, also gained new coat of arms on
their licence plates (for example,
Many small municipalities, which do not have an Administrative Unit located on their territory, should use" the emblem ("coat of arms") of the municipality that hosts the Administrative Unit responsible for them. For instance, there is a whole set of small municipalities surrounding Ljubljana that have the coat of arms of Ljubljana on their licence plates (for example, Brezovica, Ig, Skofljica, Medvode and Dol).
