Description of the flag

A red-blue-white horizontally divided flag was the flag of Serbia from 1992, when the star was officially removed, to August 2004, when new national symbols were adopted.

Unofficial variants of the flag

The variants of the Serbian national flag shown below are widely used in Serbia and Republic of Srpska in Bosnia and Herzegovina. They are not official, but still, they emphasize a nationalist meaning (especially the variant with white arms).

The flag with the ocila emblem is often used, but unofficially. However, according to some sources this flag with the cross is officially used by the Serbian Orthodox Church as the flag representing the Church.

The official Serbian coat of arms used in 1992-2004 was the Communist coat of arms, with the ocila (firesteel) emblem, but without the cross - religion was taboo back then.
