Flag of Jajce - Image by Željko Heimer, 15 January 2014
Jajce is the ancient Royal capital of the Bosnian Kingdom in the 14th century, located at the confluence of Pliva into Vrbas forming magnificent waterfalls.
Jajce was iconic in the Socialist Yugoslavia, as the assembly of AVNOJ (Antifascist Council of People's Liberation of Yugoslavia) was held there on 29 November 1943, establishing the new Yugoslavia.

The flag of Jajce (photo) is vertical white with the coat of arms in golden lines on white in the centre of it.
The table flag (photo) is similar in design, with a somewhat larger coat of arms.

Coat of arms of Jajce - Image by Željko Heimer, 18 June 2011
Jajce currently has no official arms (Populari database). This is also strongly expressed throughout the document
Strategija komuniciranja Općine Jajce (text).
The previous coat of arms is still in use, in various colour schemes. The coat of arms depicts the skyline of the town with the old fort above the waterfalls is a shield shape.
The Populari database shows a black on gray design, indicating that this is the pre-1992 design and that nothing was used in the 1990s (and today). A forum once claimed that Jajce held a contest for the new symbols some five-six years ago, but nothing was adopted and the previous coat of arms was continued to be used.
