[Slavonski Brod-Posavina]

Most of thecounties of Croatia (but not all of them) are named with two parts, one being the name of the capital and the other the name of the wider region. The capital of Brodsko-posavska zupanija is Slavonski Brod (by the way, Bosanski Brod is on the other bank of the Sava river in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and there are several "Brods" in Czeck Republic and Slovakia). Posavina means the region around Sava, and that, of course, is a region larger than the county itself.

The flag is blue with two white diagonal stripes from upper hoist to lower fly. In the middle there is the arms of county: Azure, wavy bar Argent, over it seven mullets Or 4-3, and under a marten Argent.

The image is based on the flag seen on TV news.

The flag that I posted earlier contained two mayor errors, maybe not so unusual regarding that it was based only on quick TV snaps. The erros were the number of stars (should be 5 in total, not 7) and the colour of the running marten (should be yellow, not white). The new image of the CoA (and eventually new flag image) is based on the picture of the CoA from just few days ago issued 2nd book of the Croatian encyclopedia (Hrvatska encikopedija, LZ Miroslav Krleza, Zagreb, 1999-, sv. 2: Be-Da). I still have no info on adoption date of these symbols, or on the legal documents regarding it. My esimate is that they are adopted around 1995. (I believe I've seen the flag in use (on TV) in 1996 or so, but I have no notes on that).
