Rejected proposal for the cantonal flag
by Zeljko Heimer
Some time ago (over a year, I believe) Jaume Olle'
presented an unidentified flag from Bosnia and Herzegovina that
he spoted on some TV coverage from Mostar. The flag was a
horizontal triband of Spanish type clue-white-blue with the arms
of Bosnia and Herzegovina (fleur de lys and bend) offcentered
towads the hoist.
Afterwards I included the flag image on my pages under Unidentified Flags, and now I received some information about it from a visitor of the pages. He claims that this is an "unofficial variant of a flag proposed for the flag of Herzegovina-Neretva county" of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. According to him, the proposal was rejected by the parlament of the County, while the final solution for the design is under consideration (without a clue what this design might be).

I believe that Hercegovina-Neretva has no flag yet. HN being
the most mixen Croat-Bosniak canton (Mostar is capital), so the
political will is there most difficult and question of the flag
is probably left out, as it would surely stirr the spirits and
would not do anything useful.
