Siroki Brijeg - The flag is shown on <www.siroki-brijeg.com>
and several other sites on the net (though on all those captioned
as "coat of arms"!).
The flag is blue-white-blue vertical triband of Canadian pattern (1:2:1), in ratio 1:2. In the middle, there is the coat of arms of the city - blue shield with silver church. The shield is topped by a "crown" of red, with thin white line dividing it from the blue field. The church shown on the shield is the church in the city. Siroki Brijeg was called Litica during post-WWII Yugoslavia period, the name being actually the name of the surrounding valley. As one could easily guess from the symbols, the city is mainly Croat populated.

Siroki Brijeg seems to have a flag blue-white-blue with shield
in center. Shield is a white church in blue field (crown is
stylized and red).
