Municipal flag of Kobilje

The flag and arms of Kobilje are prescribed by Decision Odlok o uporabi grba in zastave Občine Kobilje, adopted on 30 March 2004 and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 44/2004, 28 April 2004. A set of sheets, Geometrijska, likovna ter barvna pravila za oblikovanje grba in zastave, priloga, Občina Kobilje, probably an Appendix to the Decision, shows the graphical details of the symbols.

The flag is simply a banner of the municipal arms, in proportions 1:3. The flag does not have the ornamental white outline the shield has.
The colours are defined as:
- Green: Pantone 354 / CMYK 91-0-83-0
- Blue: Pantone Reflex Blue / CMYK 100-72-0-6).

The coat of arms of Kobilje is "Azure a widlsovice (checkertree) leaf vert fimbriated argent".
Kobilje is known as the place where two rare species of trees grow, named in Slovene skorl and brek. I believe that it is the leaf of brek that is shown on the municipal coat of arms. This tree is Sorbus torminalis, and it is said to be the oldest and biggest fruit tree of its kind in Slovenia and neighbouring countries. The skorl is Sorbus domestica.
