[The FAME - Flag and Arms of the Modern Era]

The FAME is site devoted to systematic and scientific study of flags and coats of arms. Such symbols often bear strong political and other messages. Inclusion of those symbols here does not mean that the author support or approve the ideas they may stand for.

Bosnia and Herzegovina - Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina 1992 - 1998

Republika Bosna i Hercegovina


With the proclamation of independence from Yugoslavia B&H rejected the socialist attribue from the name and soon adopted a new flag. The state fell into bloody war, and the new flag was soon only recognized by the central government in Sarajevo that only claimed legitimate sucession of the whole Republic. This resulted, of course, in strong rejection of this symbol by Croats and Serbs of B&H. After the Dayton Agreement in 1995 the flag bacame obsolete, but was still used when there was such need until the new flag was adopted in 1998. With this the fleur-de-lis flag was adopted by Bosniaks as their flag.
