Some time ago it was reported about the new coat of arms of Zenica-Doboj Canton shown on <>. I reported that there is a new flag and CoA even before, but I never manage to get anything more firm on that until now. I was informed by a visitor of my site, Michael Eisenblätter, that there is a photo on <> that showes the flag with the new coat of arms.
The photo showes the center of Zenica in winter-time with four flag masts, with flags hoisted vertically, left to right: 1. B&H, 2. Federation of B&H, 3. Zenica-Doboj Canton, 4. Community of Zenica.
The flag is tricolour of green over white over red with relative widths 1:2:1 (i.e. the width of the middle white stripe is double of the width of each of the green and red stripes) with the coat of arms set in the middle, as high as the with stripe, i.e. just touching the green and red stripes.
The coat of arms is a triangular shield bordered yellow, in a blue field a yellow fleur-de-lis crown above the ring of ten white six-pointed stars. The crown is also known as Kotromanic crown, refering to the medieval dinasty of Bosnian rulers.
Regarding to the quality of sources, my drawings are to be considered "educated guess", since many minor details are hardly visible.

Previous Flag

Zenica-Doboj Canton (or Canton 4) of B&H Federation. I have received a while ago information and image from Muhamed Mesic of Tuzla, the flag is supposedly adopted about 1997, being green over white over red tricolour, in ratio 4:3:1. The CoA is set in the middle, light blue with green crescent and several cheques of Gules and Argent, all bordered in gold and crowned with the Bosnian crown. The info was never confirmed from other source, and the details of the design remain unknown. It is highly probable that this flag is changed in the mean time.
Canton 4 was also called by Bosnian Croats "Bobovac<ko-Z<epac<ka zupanija" (Bobovac-Z<epa).

What we have above is not correct any more as the ZDK changed their flag recently.
