Presentation of Novi Grad

The municipality of Novi Grad, to be confuzed with the municipality of Novi Grad, part of the Town of Sarajevo (Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina), was named Bosanski Novi before the 1990s and renamed Novi Grad by the authorities of Republika Srpska. The State authorities use dual name Bosanski Novi/Novi Grad.
Novi Grad is situated at the confluence of river Sana into Una, opposite to the town of Dvor in Croatia.

Coat of arms of Novi Grad

The coat of arms of Novi Grad is prescribed in Article 7 of the Municipal Statutes Statut Opštine Novi Grad (text), adopted on 23 September 2005 by the Municipal Council and published on 30 September 2005 in the Municipal official gazette Službeni glasnik opštine Novi Grad, No. 11, as follows:

The symbol of the municipality of Novi Grad has a shape of an elongated rectangular shield, rounded in the base.
The height and the width of the shield are in proportions 4:3.
The contents of the symbol is:
- in a blue field in the top of the shield is the coat of arms of Republika Srpska and the name of the Municipality, under the coat of arms, from the longitudinal edges towards the centre of the shield are two parallel beams througout the shield width. [...] This surface is from its top side conical in shape, and from the bottom straight elongating towards the bottom with three regularly distributed columns, which end above two wavy blue stripes, extending through the entire shield's width.
In the symbol the two crossing red lines symbolize the railway and road crossing, the blue fields on the columns symbolize the bridge over river Sana, and two wavy lines in the bottom symbolize rivers Una and Sana, which flow through the territory of the Municipality.

The symbol is used in different variations:
- without the coat of arms of Republika Srpska, which may be the version (unofficially?) used after the coat of arms of Republika Srpska was abandoned;
- with the top part white with blue inscriptions, with and without the coat of arms of Republika Srpska - which may possibly be a pre-2005 or an even earlier variation.
