The coat of arms is Gules, a ash branch Argent in bend
sinister with a leaf and three acorns. It is canting (jasen
means ash-tree). The flag is blue with the coat of arms offset
towards hoist. Jasenovac is probably the best known worldwide as
a place of the infamous extermination camp that was organised
there in World War II. Adopted: around 1995 (?).
Source: Author's observations on the community building in Jasenovac, 1996.
I posted the image of the flag I saw in 1996 (which I can
safely say is not very precise in artistic details, of course).
In the official gazette now available on-line (<www.glasila.hr>) in the 2001
Statute of the community one can find reference to the decision
that adopted the coat of arms and the flag in 1995. The text of
that decision is not available on line unfortunately:
