The gallery presents municipal (in some cases, city) flags and the basic information about them (adoption date, designer, ratio, values of colours).

The common trends in the development of the municipal flags in Bulgaria are that every flag bears the emblem (the flag of Montana is the only exception), and, besides the emblems, most of them are unicoloured, mainly in white, green, blue, yellow, purple, and their shades.  Another interesting fact is the neglect of the most common colour in vexillology - the red one - probably because of its connotations to the former communist regime. Vexillology does not abide strong rules as heraldry, but it is clear, that there are lots of misconceptions among Bulgarian municipal flags: presense of inscriptions (often duplicated by inscription on the very emblem); lack of regulations on ratio and colours; comic design (see for example Svoge and Beloslav).

 The images are drawn by Stoyan Antonov after the FOTW standard. On technical reasons, slight aberration from the standard may rarely occur. GIFs of FOTW colleagues are also used occasionally. When the proportion is unknown, the ratio of the national flag (3:5) is used by default. The flags are sorted by districts after the current administrative division of Republic of Bulgaria.
