The Flag

I have passed through Neum, the only seaside town in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and there was a lot of Herzeg-Bosnia flags along with flags of Neum municipality. (It was regional holiday). The flag of Neum is red-white-blue triband with narrower blue and red stripe and with Coat of Arms on white.
Ivan Sarajcic, 3 September 1999

I remember that the Coat of Arms on the flag was in blue-red and white colors.  I'm sure that yellow (orange) were not on the flag. And the Coat of Arms was positioned as on vertical flags.
Ivan Sarajcic, 12 September 1999

Ivan Sarajcic had pointed it out was a tricolor flag. But with thinner bands of blue and white. The flag in question looks like the flag of Israel (dimensions and design wise).
Marko Puljic, 27 November 1999

Neum is in Herzegovina-Neretva Canton (nr. 7) - it is the only place in B&H with access to sea-coast - just at the point where B&H "cuts" Croatia in two (in south, just north of Dubrovnik).
Zeljko Heimer, 19 August 2001

The coat of arms is shown on the official web site of the community: Opcina Neum <>. There is the text of the 2001 Statutes, that mentions the decision that adopted the coat of arms and the flag: Statut Opcine Neum, 28. 02. 2001. Odluka o grbu i zastavi opcine Neum, "Narodni list" službeno glasilo Opcine Neum, br. 4/96
The flag of Neum is white with a red stripe near the one and a blue stripe near the other longer edge (i.e. Isreali type) and with the coat of arms in the middle.
The coat of arms consists of elements symbolising the sea, a church a sail, the sun, a dove and the chequy pattern .
