Presentation of Vodice

The municipality of Vodice was formed in 1995. The name of Vodice can be tentatively translated as "waters" or "wells", in any case the root of the word "water" is clearly sensible. Therefore it is not illogical that the coat of arms is canting, by usage of the geological symbol for underground waters (semy of fesswise billets).

Municipal flag of Vodice

The coat of arms and flag of Vodice are prescribed by Decision Odlok o grbu, zastavi in prazniku Občine Vodice, adopted on 21 August 1996 and published in the official municipal gazette Uradno glasilo Občine Vodice. The decision came in effect on the 15th day following the release of the official gazette.

Article 10 of the Decision says:

The flag is rectangular, with proportion of horizontal and vertical edges 1:2. The field is divided into upper blue and lower yellow fields in vertical ratio 1:2.5. The coat of arms is integral part of the flag, and it is set so that the wavy line is in the same time the edge between the blue and yellow fields. The detailed picture of the ratio of the flag fields and the code of the colours are an integral part of this proposal.

The Decision should have a graphical attachemnt, which is not published in the official gazette. The above image is based on Stanič [stj05], who probably has access to the attachements or additional sources.

Stanič & Jakopič [j2s05] give the colour specifications, not part of the Decision, as follows:
- Yellow: Pantone 012c or 012u
- Blue: Pantone Reflex Blue c
- Black: Pantone Black

The Decision describes the coat of arms of Vodice as being on a shield of modern shape. It describes the symbolic of the water as said above with note that "according to the opinion of Mr Dr. Sci. [= Ph.D.] Otorepec, it can be classified into the category of canting arms". Furthermore, it states that the yellow field represents the sun, energy and rich fields.
