This park is named for the mountain it skirts, Mount Triglav, which is Slovenia's tallest mountain.  The tri bit might be for the three rocky peaks, but in other sources the name is credited as coming from a Slavic god.  Either way the mountain is used as a symbol on the flag.  The park has national significance as well – it's Slovenia's only national park.  

As well as the mountain at its heart the park has beech and larch covered hills and rocky outcrops, formed by glacial shift, and includes the rising fringes of the Eastern Julian Alps.  The glacial waters have shaped the underside of the park as well, forming complex crenellated cave and underground river systems.
