Siroki Brijeg - The flag is shown on www.siroki-brijeg.com and
several other sites on the net (though on all those captioned as
"coat of arms"!).
The flag is blue-white-blue vertical triband of Canadian pattern (1:2:1), in ratio 1:2. In the middle, there is the coat of arms of the city - blue shield with silver church. The shield is topped by a "crown" of red, with thin white line dividing it from the blue field. The church shown on the shield is the church in the city. Siroki Brijeg was called Lis<tica during post-WWII Yugoslavia period, the name being actually the name of the surrounding valley. As one could easyly guess from the symbols, the city is mainly Croat populated.
