Municipal flag of Dornava - Image by Željko Heimer, 7 January 2006
The municipality of Dornava was formed in 1995 by secession from Ptuj.

The flag and arms of Dornava are prescribed by the municipal statutes Statut Občine Dornava, adopted on 28 April 1999, and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 47/1999, as follows:
The municipality of Dornava shall have a coat of arms, a flag and a municipal day.
The upper part of the coat of arms is light blue (nr. RAL 5012), in which is pictured the baroque castle of Dornava, and the lower part if light green (nr. RAL 6018), in the middle of which is pictured a stork and along each side a corn ear.
The flag of the municipality is rectangular with dimensions 90 x 190 cm, light brown (nr. RAL 1034). In the upper right part there is set the coat of arms of the municipality.
Stanič & Jakopič [j2s05] show the flag with the coat of arms in the upper left corner. The writer of the statutes might have meant right as the heraldic sinister.
The current municipal statutes, Statut Občine Dornava, adopted on 14 March 2007, and published on 23 March 2007 in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike
Slovenije, 26/2007, no longer include the prescription of the symbols, which was transfered to Decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi Občine Dornava (text), adopted on 27 February 2008, and published on 29 February 2008 in the local gazette Uradno glasilo slovenskih občin, 5/2008.
The decision superseded a Decision adopted in 2000, which was, seemingly, never issued in any gazette, but is referred only by its number as 070-03-65/2000. I guess that this decision would have been regulating the use of the COA and the flag and procedure to obtain grant to use it commercially.
