Neretva Historical Flag

One of the oldest historical source for flag examination is map. In monography of Historical Institute in Belgrade "Monumenta Cartographica Jugoslaviae II" Narodna knjiga, Belgrade 1979. author Gordana Tomovic compares different XVIth century naval maps of Balkan peninsula. She notices flags above some place names on map preserved in 'Bibliotheque National in Paris (Departement des cartes et plans)' made on pergament by Angelino Dulcert (1339a.d.):

"14. Flag above town of Neretva (Drijeva, Narent) - in today's Croatia. Colours are not mentioned. This one is possibly predecessor of today's flag of town of Metkovic, and Dubrovacko-Neretvanska zupanija in Croatia. If it is - then the fields are blue and white."
