The current trend in Serbia is that the subnational flags are square banners of arms. The coats of arms are also mostly standardized, meaning that they consist of a shield with full ornamentation around it, usually with two supporters holding a flag each, one being the Serbian flag (square) and the other the banner of the arms of the community or the district flag.

It seems that the coats of arms and flags were adopted recently in Serbia under heavy influence of the Serbian Heraldic Society, which issues a gazette (12 a year)

The International Civic Arms website shows the coat of arms of the Lapovo District in Serbia. This coat of arms includes two flags, both with gold fringes and approx. 1:1 ratio: the Serbian national flag and the district's banner of arms.
