Zaječar Flag

For a country in southeastern Europe, it's slightly surprising to see the Nordic Cross in its flag

Zaječar Flag


The flag for the eastern Serbian town of Zaječar was adopted in 2009.

Click the image on the left to enlarge, and you'll see the town's emblem is positioned in front of a Nordic Cross, which is another reminder that cross designs do not 'belong' to any particular region or culture. The familiar symbol of Scandinavia is seen all over the world, north, south, east and west.

The orange of the main flag is the same colour as used in the town's emblem, and the blue field of the flag matches that of the national flag of Serbia.

If you know any more about this flag, and in particular why the Nordic Cross style was chosen, please email us and we'll update this page.
