I located the flag of the city of Livno at a Croatian site:
http://hep.tel.fer.hr/livno/Bg/zast.gif (defunct), and it seems
that the flag is 1:1.

I am very much in doubt weather the flag is really 1:1. I
would be ready to bet that it is 1:2, and that this image is
"only" used there as button or something similar. But,
I'll try to contact the webmaster. Livno is not in Croatia, but
in B&H (though in mainly Croat populated area, once known as Herzeg-Bosnia). It is in canton
Herceg-Bosanski, and may even be the capital of it.

Based on mail exchanged with people living there, it seems
that the flag in use is 1:2, just as the Croatian flag and HRHB
flag. I think there is little possibility that the official flag
is defined otherwise.
Vertical flag is reported to me. Anyway, the region is heavily populated with Croats and as it seems. The canton of which Livno its capital adopted the Croatian tricolour as their cantonal flag, and even if that was proclaimed unconstitutional it seems that they use it nevertheless.
