The table flag of Drenovci (photo, photo) is a white vertical flag with the emblem in the centre, over the inscription of the municipality's name in two rows, all brown.
The emblem depicts an oak twig with three acorns. The design was chosen to indicate wood industry as base for the historical and current development of Drenovci. The oak forests were abundant in the region and are still an important resource.
