Car flag

[Car flag of the Minister of Defense]by Zeljko Heimer

The car flag of the Minister of Defense is a dark blue-red-light blue horizontally divided flag, fimbriated white with the Minister's emblem overall and a golden fring on three edges.
The emblem and the inscription can be seen on the website of the Ministry of Defense. The text has a quite unusual Greek font, though. The inscription (Latin transcription: amynesthai peri patris) stems from Homer's Iliad (12:243) and means "to defend one's country". The whole line reads: Heis oiynos aristos amynesthai peri patris (One omen is best, to fight for one's country).
