Under the Article 32 (b) of the Decree on the uniform, rank tags and symbols of the police (Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia No. 104/2010) official Slovenia police badge is composed of the golden yellow shield and a stylized silhouette of Slovenia, while in the middle of the field are the colors of the flag of the Republic of Slovenia, from left to right: white, blue and red. Traditional and exclusive horizontal order of historical slovenian colors, therefore, no longer apply.

Finally I can post a copy of the authors synopses of an legal article published in Slovenian law magazine Pravnik, Ljubljana 2010, let. 65 (127), št. 11-12, str. 837−867. In this article author is defending a legitimacy of also vertical presentation of slovenian colours: white-blue-red.

In June 2011 Government Communication Office of Republic of Slovenia issued an interesting .pdf informational leaflet titled Slovenian Symbols in which is clearly stated that on 23 September 1848 the white, blue, and red officially became the Slovenian national flag. From the leaflet it also derive that the government is concern that the three equal horizontal bands of white, blue, and red are the same as on the Russian and Slovak flags. (page 4 of the above mentioned leaflet).
Leaflet Slovenian Symbols is publicly available on:

Statehood Day is a holiday that occurs on every 25th of June in Slovenia to commemorate the country's declaration of independence from Yugoslavia in 1991. Although the formal declaration of independence did not come until 26th of June 1991, Statehood Day is considered to be June 25th since that was the date on which the initial acts regarding independence were passed and Slovenia became independent. Slovenia's declaration jumpstarted the Ten-Day War, which it eventually won, with its former overseer Yugoslavia.
Statehood Day is not to be confused with Slovenia's Independence and Unity Day, which is celebrated each year on December 26th in honour of the 26th of December 1990 official proclamation of the results of the plebiscite in which 88.5% of all Slovenian voters were in favor of Slovenia becoming a sovereign nation.
Well, to make a long story short, Happy Birth day Slovenia and let the unalienated right to independent use of historical slovenian colours never cease to exist! :D

Geometric arrangement of slovenian colors (whether horizontal or vertical) on the flag's surface wasn't originally legally regulated. First such known legal regulation is relatively new, consider the historical age of slovenian colors. It wasn't before 1947 that slovenian socialist government adopt an exclusive horizontal rule for geometric arrangement of slovenian colors on the flag's surface. Article 4 of the Constitution of the People's Republic of Slovenia (Official Gazette of the People's Republic of Slovenia No. 4/A/47) explicitly stated: »The colours of the flag are laid down horizontally from top to bottom in this order: white, blue and red.«. This constitutional rule endured unchanged in slovenian legal system for 44 years, until it was finally changed by the first democratically elected slovenian government in 1991. New and still valid Constitution of the Republic of Slovenia (Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia No. 33I/91-I, 42/97, 66/00, 24/03, 69/04, 69/04, 69/04 and 68/06) didn't only legally allowed both horizontal or/and vertical geometric arrangement of slovenian colors on the flag's surface, but even prioritise vertical geometric arrangement rule, because its Article 6 provides that: »The colours of the flag go in the following order: white, blue and red.«. Newly used verbs »go« and »follow« clearly legally indicate lineal progression of slovenian historical colors on the flag's surface, instead of the before exclusively allowed top to bottom geometrical arrangement.

Nota realistic idea, just some creative thinking.

An interesting flag, but I think it's not what Slovenians are waiting at moment...

I really like the distinctive and clever arrangement of the Pete Collier design, though the stars in the upper fly would be hard to see in flight and not be seen at all when at rest so would be better just to be left out.

However I agree with GoldenWest I think the vertical tricolour is simple and distinctive, a real classic. Would be a great flag to adopt.
