County Flag

Assembly of Zala county has decided to change its colours from green-golden to blue and silver. Regulation issued on 09 July 2010, but it will be valid from 08 September 2010.
By the study made a leader of County Registry, green and yellow colours were not used by Zala county in the past (only in recent times), but blue and silver were more popular.
08 September is Day of Saint Adorian, who is a patron of Zalavar. It celebrated its 1000th anniversary of establishment of settlement, last year.
So, pattern of coat of arms and flag will be unchanged, only the colours will change to blue and silver. Only exception is the crown, it remains golden.
All of these information reported by a local online newspaper:
