Presentation of Ljubno

The municipality of Ljubno was formed in 1995, seceding from Mozirje. The town is often referred to as Ljubno ob Savinji. It was granted civic rights in 1459 by the nearby Benedictine monastery; these rights were confirmed in 1565 and a few times more.

Flag of Ljubno

The flag and coat of arms of Ljubno are prescribed by Decision Odlok o grbu, zastavi in prazniku Občine Ljubno, adopted on 23 November 1995 and published in the local official gazette Uradno glasilo Zgornjesavinjskih občin, 6/95, 7 December 1995, with effect on 22 December 1995.

The symbols were designed by Valt Jurečič of Heraldika d.o.o. and Heraldica Slovenica, who kindly provided drawings from which the images shown on this page were made.

The flag is a rectangular, in proportions 2:5, horizontally divided blue-yellow-blue with a square field of blue overall in the middle, therefore, dividing the yellow stripe in two parts, containing the eight-pointed yellow star from the coat of arms.

- Light yellow: Pantone Yellow;
- Dark yellow: Pantone 116;
- Blue: Pantone 29;3
- Black: Pantone Black.

The coat of arms of Ljubno is "Azure a mullet or".
Stanič & Jakopič [j2s05] sas that Emperor Frederic III confirmed the civic rights of Ljubno and granted a coat of arms to the town in 1470. It was a golden star on a blue shield. Pichegger shows an eight-pointed, faceted star very much like the one in the current coat of arms. Stanič & Jakopič show also the municipal seal of 1936, made of a six-pointed star in an oval shield.
