[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.

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 city or community should be of a one colour field with the coat of arms in the centre or offset towards hoist. Some exceptions from this rule are tolerated for the cities with traditional flag established before these rules were made. 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 city documents.
In 1997 the communities of Lipik, Pakrac and Pleternica were given city status. In the same time is the city of Našice removed to Osijek and Baranja County. In 2006 the community of Kutjevo was given city status.


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 city of Požega is in use at least since 1702, and is officially granted on 1st September 1765 by empress and queen Maria Theresia, when Požega acquired the status of the Free and Royal City (unfortunately, the original doucment was lost to fire in 1842). It consists of a blue shield in baroque ornamented border, with three towered city walls above those a golden falcon with spread wings, silver crescent and star, and a golden radiating sun. The same coat of arms was readopted in 1993, when the flag was adopted in form of a ceremonial flag.
The ceremonial flag of the city has on the obverse the embroiderid coat of arms above the inscription POŽEGA (which is apparently sometimes omitted) in the blue field and on the reverse three richly ornamented roundels containing images of Fra Luka Ibrišimović, the leader of uprising against the Turks and liberator of the city in 1688, Saint Teresa of Avila, patron of the city, and the column of the Holly Trinity, erected in the city centre in 1749, in memory of 798 citizens died in the plague of 1739 (when city had only two thousand inhabitants). While the original ceremonial flag is preserved in the city museum, its replicas, also produced by rich embroidering are used by the city authorities. Printed versions with minor variations in colours and details were also made. Flags with the coat of arms printed on both sides in the horizontal layout and the more usual 1:2 ratio were also noted in use.

Between 1929 and 1991 the name of the city was Slavonska Požega.
* Note: the official blazon in the Ministry approval was simply copied from city decisions; the approval was granted prior to the establishment of the Coats of Arms and Flags Approval Commission, and unlike the subsequent approvals, it does not contain the heraldic blazon written by an expert.

In the preparation for the celebration of the 750 anniversary of Požega city the new flag was adopted in 1974. It was produced in a specialized workshop of the Order of the Sisters of Mercy in Zagreb, and the design is vaguely reminiscent to the Požega voluntary fire-fighting society from 1875. The blue silk flag is fringed with gold. On the obverse is the coat of arms of the city, with the red five-pointed star incorporated in the ornament and the name of the city below. The reverse is ornament of the corn and vine elements with the years of the anniversary encircled with rays formed by the flowers representing symbolically surrounding villages. The inscriptions name the Požega Valley in Latin and Croatian: Vallis Aurea - Požeška kotlina. Since the end of 1977 the flag is preserved in the Požega museum.

The flag of the civic infantry company (Phalanga civica, Militia civica) is red rectangular silk flag semée with golden embroideried mullets of five and crescents, with a golden edged rectangular painted panel off-set to hoist. The panel depicts the city arms surrounded with pink curtains on the obverse, and patrons of the city, St. Roch and St. Florian. The entire flag is edged on all four edges with golden fringe. The infantry company had originally general order and security functions, but by the end of the 19th century it was already merely ceremonial, while the flag it used obtained the function of a proper city flag.
The flag was used well into the 20th century and eventually in 1930 delivered in a bad shape to the city museum, where it was restored in 2007.

The coat of arms is obviously based on the historical coat of arms of Slavonia, and was used as the city seal since 1837 (while other sources claim that it was granted as arms in 1932, but it may not be contradictory). The flag is blue with the yellow bordered coat of arms in the centre. Table flag are vertical with the coat of arms offset to the top and the city name inscribed in a line below.

The first decision on the symbols already prescribes the current coat of arms (although dating it to the 18th century and mentions a 1925 chapel, probably refering to the 1932 chapel of the Mother of God of Sljeme above Zagreb). The flag is, however, prescribed as light grey with the coat of arms in the centre. The decision was soon changed (at yet undetermined date) to include reference to the Croatian State Archives document, dating the arms correctly to 1932. The flag description was also changed at the same time, to conform with the state regulations.
