Coat of Arms

The community of Fojnica is in the Central Bosnia Canton, south west of Sarajevo. For heraldry Fojnica is well known since in the Fojnica franciscan monestery was preserved a 15th century Armorial that is one of the most imporatnt sources for the medieval heraldry and genealogy of the South-Eastern Europe.
The emblem of Fojnica shows simbolically a yellow fountain between evergreen wooded mountains, with a wavy line below and year 1365.
I have no info on the possible flag, and hope for the response of the webmasters from <>. The site quotes a name of a decision adopted in the community assembly in 2001: Zakljucak o davanju saglasnosti za raspisivanje javnog natjecaja za izradu grba opcine Fojnica, 07.09.2001. This could be translated as Conclusion on agreement on issuing a public concourse for the design of the coat of arms of Fojnica. Weather this Coat of Arms is a result of this concourse, I could not tell. I suppose that at the same time a flag might have been adopted (if anything was adopted after 2001 - the site has no news regarding the assembly sessions after 2001!).
