The Serbian tricolour was first used in 1815 with stripes ordered red-white-blue, and since 1835 the red-blue-white stripes are adopted. Since then the emblems in the middle were changed with regimes. The golden bordered red star was dropped around 1992, with the parliamentary recommendation. The latest recommendation of 2004 introduced also the state flag and set of the rank flags, as well as it reintroduced the coat of arms of 1882. The recommendations were issued instead of the laws due to the easier legislative procedure, though legally as such they are not bidding to anyone.
The coat of arms in this form was introduced by King Milan when the kingdom was proclaimed. The lesser coat of arms is Gules, two fleur-de-lis or below a double-headed eagle argent, beaked, membered and tongued or, bearing an escutcheon: gules, a cross argent between four firesteels or addorsed. Crowned with a royal crown proper. The greater coat of arms also adds the heraldic mantle topped with a crown.
The status of the flag and the coat of arms was finally legilstaed with the 2009 law.

The state flag adds on the national tricolour the lesser coat of arms in the middle offset toward the hoist for 1/7 of the flag length.
The vertical variant is not prescribed, but is used in this form nevertheless - with the coat of arms off-set towards the canton.

The chairman of the Parliament is given the same standard but without the tricolour border, also according to the Yugoslav tradition, even though that was established only after the World War II.

The three coat of arms that form the new coat of arms of Vojvodina are those of (Hungarian and Croatian) counties, mainly granted in 18th century. The coat of arms of Bačka (Bács) was granted by king Leopold I (1657-1705) in 1699. It was retained for the united county of Bács-Bodrog latter on (1861?). In blue field on a green grass standing St. Paul holding in dexter a sword and in sinister a Bible. The Hungarian county of Bács-Kiskun that consists of parts of Bács that remained in Hungary also uses the coat of arms with St. Paul in its dexter half.
The coat of arms gules a lion rampant or holding a sabre above his head is the coat of arms of Temesvar Bannate, that was a separate crown-land in Habsburg Empire since its liberation from Turks in 1718 until 1779 when it was absorbed into Hungary and divided in three counties.
The third coat of arms is that of Srem (Hungarian Szerém, Croatian Srijem) granted in 1747 by Queen Maria Theresia. The modern Croatian county of Vukovar and Srijem uses the same coat of arms, also.
The flag of Vojvodina is a horizontal tricolour of red over blue over white in ratio 1:8:1, with three yellow five-pointed stars arranged circularly in the middle. The stars are inscribed within imaginary circle with diameter 30% of the hoist, with their centres arranged regularly along an imaginary circle 37% of the hoist in diameter centred in the middle of the flag. The tricolour is based on the Serbian tricolour, the three stars refer to three parts: Srem, Banat and Bačka, but also remind to the European orientation of the region.
Before the flag was adopted some Vojvodina political parties, among others League of Social-democrats of Vojvodina (LSV) and Coalition Vojvodina (KV) promoted the tricolour of blue-yellow-green as the flag of Vojvodina since mid-1990's, in vertical and in horizontal format. This was said to be based on flags used in revolutionary movements of 1848, though even if it was it must have been of secondary importance after the Hungarian and Serbian flags used. It is said that some such flag is preserved in a Vojvodina museum in Novi Sad, though with a brown stripe instead of a green one.
