The Coat of Arms of Sisak-Moslavina is quite often seen (on TV) and seems to be popular. It is crowed with mural crown of 7 towers. I somehow doubt that this crown has anything to be disputed. It originates from the mural crown of the city of Sisak. (The flag is also often seen, very interesting, but also not legaly right, since it is tricolour). I do not have info on when it is adopted in the assembly, nor was it or not approved by the Ministry.The County of Sisak - Moslavina is in central Croatia, south-east of Zagreb. Its capital, Sisak, is Croatian center of heavy industry. Big parts of the County were occupied in recent war, especially southern parts, where Serb population was considerable. In western part of the County there is a site of a concentration camp from World War II in Jasenovac. The County is especially known for its many hunting facilities in numerous marshes abound Sava river. A stork is a native bird there, but it is also found on the ancient arms of the city of Sisak. The swords stands as a symbol of defence, both in the recent war and in historic wars against Ottoman empire.

Vertical Flag

by Zeljko Heimer, 11 October 2000

Dov Gutterman located a photo of a flag hanged from the window at <>. This showes a photo from liberation of the city of Petrinja in 1995. The flag hoisted on window is the flag of the county of Sisak and Moslavina, in which the city is. The building is the city hall of Petrinja (and I believe the flag of Petrinja itself was hoisted just few moments latter, but I never managed to get a good sight of it, except that it contains a CoA with black eagle...) The one seen on the photo is vertical variant which upper red stripe invisible in the interior of the building.

The vertical variant is in much more frequent use, as far as I could notice. Nither the Coat of Arms nor the flag are approved by the Ministry, but it seems that SMC does not care much about it and use them nevertheless.
