The Municipality of Litija (Slovene: Občina Litija) is a municipality in central Slovenia. The seat of the municipality is the town of Litija. Traditionally the area was part of the Upper and Lower Carniola regions. The entire municipality is now included in the Central Sava Statistical Region; until January 2014 it was part of the Central Slovenia Statistical Region. The population of the municipality is a bit below 15,000.[2]

Coat of arms[edit]

The municipal coat of arms shows the situla vase from Vače (Vače situla), the Sava River, and a boatman pushing his boat, known as a punt, across the Sava.[3][4]
