This is the flag of the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina adopted
Velid-aga Jerlagic, 13 April 1998
The Bosnia and Herzegovina Army Coat of Arms was promoted
today in Sarajevo. (BiH TV news - This is the first Coat of Arms
adopted without Schumacher, Steiner and Westendorp.)

I think the new insignia are actually for the army of the
Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Croatian news agency HINA reported this on 5 February.
HINA said the new army insignia had two black concentric circles with lettering "Federation of Bosnia-Herzegovina" and "Federation Army", with the Federal coat-of-arms with two swords in the middle. The agency also said that the coat of arms of the Defence Ministry will be similar but with a blue background. It was reported that the new insignia, soon to be added to uniforms, were the result of a public competition.

Bosnia and Herzegovina don't have an air force. Gevernment
aircrafts have a national flag in the canton. I guess the they
also carry the appropiate arms (national, RS or Federation) on
the fuselage as this Cessna 500 of Republic of Srpska seen at
Military Aircraft Insignia of the World [cos98] reported that a roundel was used in 1992 (see <www.skytamer.com>) based on the 1992 flag.
