According to Banderas municipales de Eslovenia [drn96i], published in Banderas [ban] #58 (March 1996), and according to a postcard showing Slovene coats of arms, it seems that the former coat of arms and flag were adopted in 1989, though in minor details differing from what is official today. Those flag and arms are also shown by Zalokar [zal90].
The flag is green, with the coat of arms in the middle, without further details defining it.
It seems that the coat of arms used from that time had at least two variants - one having a red chief with a white inscription with the name of municipality in white, the other without this chief, but with white inscription of the year 1989 in base (green field). It is possible that a coat of arms without inscription was also used.
