This is the flag of the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina adopted in 1993.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina Army Coat of Arms was promoted today in Sarajevo. (BiH TV news - This is the first Coat of Arms adopted without Schumacher, Steiner and Westendorp.)

I think the new insignia are actually for the army of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Croatian news agency HINA reported this on 5 February.
HINA said the new army insignia had two black concentric circles with lettering "Federation of Bosnia-Herzegovina" and "Federation Army", with the Federal coat-of-arms with two swords in the middle. The agency also said that the coat of arms of the Defence Ministry will be similar but with a blue background. It was reported that the new insignia, soon to be added to uniforms, were the result of a public competition.

Bosnia and Herzegovina don't have an air force. Gevernment aircrafts have a national flag in the canton. I guess the they also carry the appropiate arms (national, RS or Federation) on the fuselage as this Cessna 500 of Republic of Srpska seen at <www.airliners.net>.
Military Aircraft Insignia of the World [cos98] reported that a roundel was used in 1992 (see <www.skytamer.com>) based on the 1992 flag.
