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 (?).

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 (<>) 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: "Odluka o opisu i uporabi grba i zastave Opcine Jasenovac, Službeni vjesnik Opcine Jasenovac, br. 8/95. in: Statut Opcine Jasenovac, 3.10.2001, Službeni vjesnik, br. 20/01."
