Slovenia

Republic of Slovenia, Slovenija, Republika Slovenija


Slovenia proclaimed independence from Yugoslavia on 25th June 1991. The Yugoslav Army started attack at once, and a brief war victorious to Slovenia was lead. The flag was hoisted on the day of independence, the traditional Slovenian tricolour defaced with the newly devised coat of arms. That flag was officially adopted latter on, but is still considered a kind of a transitional solution, and the discussion on adoption of a new permanent flag arises from time to time. However, it does not seem that Slovenia shall change her flag any time soon.


National Flag

The flag of Slovenia uses Pan-Slovene colours in combination first used as Slovenian flag in 1848. As it happens that Russia and Slovakia use the same combination of horizontal stripes, the coat of arms is set in canton for differentiation. The coat of arms is blue shield bordered red on two edges, with triple mountain (Mount Triglav) over two waves representing Slovenian lakes and sea, and golden three six-pointed stars, from the coat of arms of counts of Celje (Cilli).
On sea this flag is prescribed for boats (less the 24 m long) and for ships and boats of the Ministry of Defence. For the merchant ships the flag in ratio 2:3 is prescribed.



Slovene Nation

Slovenska narodna zastava

[Slovene Nation] [Normal] 1:2
Adopted: 20th October 1994
Source: Ukaz o razglasitvi zakona o grbu, zastavi in himni Republike Slovenije ter o slovenski narodni zastavi, 21. X. 1994. UL, št. 67, str. 3715, 27. X. 1994.

The flag of the Slovene nation is prescribed by the Slovenian laws, and is supposed to represent the Slovenian people (differing from Slovenia as state). However, due to the similarity with the flags of Russia and Slovakia, this flag is only a theoretical possibility and virtually never used.

The same law allows official use of the Italian and Hungarian flags in regions where those ethnical groups are living, prescribing them equal status with Slovenian flag. The two communities use their respective national flags, usually the simple tricolours without any symbols, though the design of those flags is not prescribed with this law.



Civil Ensign

[Civil Ensign] [Normal] 2:3 [Civil and State Ensign]

Following the tradition on Eastern Adriatic Coast, Slovenia also uses the national flag in ratio 2:3 as the flag of the merchant navy.

The jack for the vessels owned by the Ministry of Defence is changed in 1996 from the previous design that was apparently not distinctive enough. The colours of the jack are inspired from the coat of arms (yellow), now allowing clear distinction. Tje jack is a horizontal tricolour of white, blue and yellow. The 2001 and 2007 regulations repeat the previous determinations.

The first adopted jack was a blue rectangular flag with the coat of arms set in the middle. The use of this flag was discontinued after adoption of the tricolour jack less then a year latter.
