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

The FAME is a site devoted to the 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 supports or approves of the ideas they may stand for.

Pozega and Slavonia County

Požeško-slavonska županija


Since 1993 the Croatian legislation allows the units of local self-government (counties, cities and communities) to have their coat of arms and flag, however these may be legally used only after they are approved by a central state authority. The a flag of a county should be of a two colours field with the coat of arms in the centre or offset towards hoist. The coat of arms must follow also a set of rules to be approved. Some cities and communities use unapproved designs nevertheless. See more on the approval dates. Prior to 1993 the coats of arms and flag were not regulated by state legislation.
The official bazon (heraldic descripton) of the coats of arms and descriptions of the flags are according to the approval text of the central state authority, other description according to other county documents.


Legal notice: The counties, cities and communities in the Republic of Croatia by their decision on adoption and use of the coats of arms and flags limit the use of these symbols only after obtaining an explicit written permission. However, most of the units of local government and self-government by the same decisions explicitly allow the free use of the symbols in the educational and scientific purposes and in the artistic creation, under condition that such use does not offend the dignity and honour of the local unit. The author of these pages considers that the depiction of the coats of arms and the flags here meets the conditions of free use in that sense.

The coat of arms of the Požega and Slavonia County is the same as the shield of the coat of arms of the former Požega County, granted on 26 February 1748 by Empress Maria Theresia. The shield is divided per fess, in chief azure two lions rampant reguardant or, the dexter holding a sword argent topped with a crown or and the sinister holding a sceptre or topped with a crown or from which is folding around the Sceptre a shroud gules, and in base vert, between two barrulets wavy argent a marten passant proper. The coat of arms is set in the centre of a flag of green-yellow-green, with the central stripe being double the width of each other two.
