In December 1998. Serbian Sarajevo (Srpsko Sarajevo) approved
the proposal designs of Serbian Heraldry Society for the Armorial
Achievment of the city . It is 1:1 as well as other 20 or
something newly approved banners of arms in Serbia, Montenegro
and Republic of Srpska
Srpsko Sarajevo is Serbian part of Sarajevo in Republic of Srpska, and its capital (includes Pale, too). Banner's Blazon: Gules a Cross gyronny of Azure and Argent. BTW, There is no law both in FRY and in RS that says something about banners of municipalities or cities. Theese are the "banners of arms" placed on greater arms of territorial units.

Federation of BA and Republic of Srpska. The flag could be seen

This is what the site says:
This is the new CoA of the Community of Centar, adopted on the
assembly session in Jul 1999 among several proposals given by the
Concourse commision for the new CoA and flag after the public
concourse. The author of the design is a young female designer
The new CoA and flag of the Community of Centar were officially adopted by the Community Council on its session on 21-OCT-1999. It was decided that the colours (yellow and blue) on the flag be darker to match those on the flag of B&H.
The CoA is dominated by an unusual tree - a motive copied from a standing stone [mideval grave stone typical for B&H] in the Land Museum symbolizing the growth of the Community and security, and the blue band represent the river Miljacka [river of Sarajevo]. The base of the shield is red land from which the tree is growing while green field is symbol of the healthy natural environment for the life.
This image is the original proposal of the author for the flag of the Community with the ceremonial COA (that one is prescribed for memorial plates and similar occasions). The design of the adopted flag is the same, but the shade of blue and yellow is darker.

The site mentioned above (http://www.sarajevo-centar.org/GrbZastava.htm)
shows a different flag now. Maybe there has been a recent change
Above is the new version of the flag of Centar-Sarajevo.
