[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.

Sisak and Moslavina County

Sisačko-moslavačka 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 is divided per pale in green with a stork and light blue with down-pointing sword, all bordered by a golden outline and crowned with a crown consisting of seven towers. The crown is derived from a similar crown of the capital Sisak. Stork is native in the region, and there is a nature reserve famous for storks along Sava River in the County. The sword is symbol determination of the people to defend themselves, but it is down-pointed as a sign of readiness to peace. The flag is blue with a red and a white stripe along the hoist, and with the coat of arms in the centre of it, properly rotated for horizontal or vertical hoisting. A horizontal version of the flag with the red and white stripes along the top is also used, often actually displayed vertically.

This is the only place where such design is used so far, as it is known. It may be that this variat was actually approved by the Ministry.
