Description of the flag

Mladenovac is one of the communities forming the modern city of Belgrade.

The coat of arms (greater, middle, lesser) and the flag were adopted on 15 May 2002, after a design by Father Aleksej von Biron and its graphical interpretation of Dragomir Acovic, Chairman of the Serbian Society fo Heraldry, Genealogy, Vexillology and Phaleristics White Eagle and Royal Household Herold.

The flag is square, blue with golden oak trefoil and a white horisontal stripe near the bottom. As it is the modern practice in Serbian heraldry, the flag is a simplification of the charges from the coat of arms.

The flag is canting, playing on the name of the city. Mladenovac comes from the root mlad, which means "young", and mladica means a budding plant, as symbolized by the oak trefoil. The oak is further a symbol for the Holy Trinity, which is the city's patronal feast.
The silver bar stands for the brook Lug which flows nearby.
