Flag adopted 14 Feb 1999
The village Lovčica-Trubín is in Žiar nad Hronom okres, Banskobystrica region. Its Coat of Arms and flagdescription is on this webpage, which reads:
"From generation to generation many verbal reports about history are preserved. For example: in place where the terrier of Trubín is situated, also on an opposite hill named Trubínec, there met trumpeters, who were calling a meeting of hunters for a hunt and they finished this hunt (Slovak - lov) by trumpeting. From this word was derived name for the habitation Lovčica.
To the worthiest village coats-of-arms in heraldic hierarchy belong speaking coats-of-arms.
This speaking coat-of-arms owns our village, too:
- a motive of crossbow (symbol of Lovčica)
- a motive of horn (symbol of Trubín)
Connection of both motives into a heraldic impressive composition creates an ideal coat-of-arms which has become a speaking coat-of-arms of united village Lovčica-Trubín after its taking into a shield. The final version of this coat-of-arms is:
            In blue shield over a silver, gold smithed hunter's horn an upwards directed gold crossbow
            with a silver bowstring and with a silver arrow.

Flag of village Lovčica-Trubín consists of five vertical strips of colours of blue (1/8), yellow (2/8), blue (2/8), white (2/8) and blue (1/8)."
