Slovenia's national flag is a horizontal tricolor flag with three equal horizontal bands of white (top), blue, and red, with Slovenia's Coat of arms situated in the upper hoist side of the flag centered in the white and blue bands.

The coat of arms depicts Mount Triglav, Slovenia's highest peak, in white on a blue background, surrounded by two wavy blue lines representing the Adriatic Sea and local rivers, and three six-pointed golden stars arranged in an inverted triangle above it, which are derived from the coat of arms of the Counts of Celje, a prominent Slovene dynastic house of the late 14th and early 15th centuries. The colors of the flag are thought to be Pan-Slavic, but they really stem from the medieval coat of arms of the Duchy of Carniola.

It is worth noting that the Slovenian national flag was first raised during the 1848 Revolution by Slovene Romantic nationalist activist and poet Lovro Toman on April 7, 1848, in Ljubljana in reaction to a German flag flown on top of Ljubljana Castle.

The design of the civil and state ensign for ships is similar to that of the national flag, but with a different form ratio (2:3 instead of 1:2). Under 24 meters, boats use the national flag as an ensign. The colors of the coat of arms are used for the naval jack, which is a white, blue, and yellow horizontal tricolor.
