[Second Bosnian flag in Austria-Hungary]
by Velid-aga Jerlagic

The province of Bosna used normally in the Austrian era a flag red and yellow horizontally; the province of Herzegowina used the same flag but reversed (yellow and red).
Jaume Olle', 6 November 1996

Meyers of 1897 says that Herzegovina was not a landesfarben. Maybe they where adopted later?
But I don't think so, since Bosnia and Herzegovina were administered as one land, and probably red over yellow would be used in Herzegovina also, if any.
Zeljko Heimer, 7 November 1996

The supposed provincial flags of Bosnia and Herzegowina was red over yellow, and yellow over red.. The Herzegowina flags is yet unknown, but I read that both flags were in oficial use since 1908 (and until 1918).
Jaume Olle', 8 January 1997

The flag above was adopted in 1908, when Bosnia was annexed to the Austro-Hungarian empire.
