Background knowledge

It was felt that the previous flag was too "Bosnian" and the other nationalities were not represented. So it was decided to use a design that did not show any national symbolism, a dark blue field with a right-angled yellow triangle and a line of white stars along the diagonal side of the triangle. However, the blue was originally intended to be UN blue. The stars are meant to be reminiscent of the flag of Europe, and the yellow isosceles triangle represents the three major equal population groups in the country. Yellow is also the color of the sun and peace. On 20.05.1998 the new national coat of arms was introduced. It is based on the national flag, but contains two stars less.

For Muslims there is a green-white-green flag with a green bordered white crescent in the middle. Green and the crescent represent Islam, white stands for peace. Since 1996, a flag divided into three vertical stripes in red, white and green has existed for the Bosnian-Croatian Federation. In the white stripe there is also a coat of arms. It contains one Bosnian, one Croatian and one European symbol.

The flag of the Serbian Republic (Republika Srpska) is derived from the Serbian flag, but the eagle is on a blue background and carries a crown. Normally, however, only the horizontal red-blue-white striped flag is displayed, or supplemented by the golden cross with the four golden flints.

The Republic (Canton) Herzeg-Bosna of the Croats uses the Croatian flag with a slightly modified Croatian coat of arms.
