Flag of Moravske Toplice - Image by Željko Heimer, 6 May 2006
According to Stanič & Jakopič [j2s05], the unofficial flag of Moravske Toplice is vertical, white with the municipal emblem in its lower part above the name of the municipality and bordered along the bottom edge with a green stripe gradually lightening into the white field.

Emblem of Moravske Toplice - Image by Željko Heimer, 6 May 2006, after Stanič & Jakopič [j2s05]
The emblem is explained on the municipal website by its designer, Staša Pilar, as follows:
The emblem I put in the middle of the cot of arms is composed of a horizontal line, representing the plains of Prekmurje, being part of the municipality. This base is upgraded with two hills, representing the hilly part of the municiplaity, and at the same time getting closer to the already known symbol of Moravske Toplice, being the center of the municipality and after which the municipality is best known. The emblem is divided into two by a church belfry, as a metaphore uniting the ecclesiastic characteristics of the municipality (Martjanci, Bogojina, Moravci, Selo).
The green colour, dominant in the emblem, is soothing, healing and inspiring. It is neither affective nor emative. In social sense, it is the colour of the middle class, the colour of the silent majority. In nature, it means birth of a new life. With the addition of yellow it gets freshness and with a pinch of blue it becomes rational and Pannonic dolorous. The red colour as accent acquires vivacity, energy and tourist motionness of the municipality.
