The coat of arms and flag of Komenda are prescribed by Decision Odlok o grbu, zastavi in datumu občinskega praznika občine Komenda (text and images), adopted on 30 March 2006 and published on 11 April 2006 in the municipal official gazette Uradne objave Glasila občine Komenda, 04/2006, superseding Decision Odlok o grbu, zastavi in prazniku občine Komenda, adopted on 2 March 2000 and published in Uradne objave Glasila občine Komenda, 02/2000, without noticeable change in the description of either the flag or arms.

The flag of Komenda is of a design characteristic of the Slovenian municipal flags. A cross of unusual shape is made of a combination of an horizontal division in three stripes and a vertical division in three unequal stripes, which is often known as Canadian pale. Therefore, the flag has four rectangles, one in each corner, while the main field forms an unusual wide cross. The vertical arm of the cross is square and bears some attribute from the coat of arms as a rule. The flag overall proportions is 2:5.
The flag of Komenda has such a yellow cross on a red field. The lenghtwise stripe is thinner than in other examples of that cross pattern (e.g. Gornji Petrovci). In the square of the cross there is the attribute of the coat of arms, the red shield with the white Maltese cross, bordered gold and crowned with a black crown.
