The feature within the Kragujevac Flag that distinguishes its national identity is the cross of Serbia
Kragujevac was first capital of modern Serbia (1818-1839) and became a military equipment supplier and major Fiat-based car manufacturer, which was destroyed by NATO bombing in 1999.
Fiat refused to give up and rebuilt a new facility. Production of a new five-door mini MPV (Fiat 500L) began in 2012. (One unique feature of the 500L is the optional in-vehicle espresso coffee machine.) The launch at the Geneva Motor Show was aggressive and the company is optimistic for the car's future.
Following the factory's destruction, such a hawkish approach is to be welcomed. The hawk on the flag, by the way, is the city's namesake.
