Proposal of flag for Bosnia and Herzegovina - Image by Jorge Candeias, 6 November 1996
Vlaggen uit de hele Wereld (the Dutch edition of William Crampton's The World of Flags), published in 1992 >A HREF="bib-cra.html#cra92a">[cra92a], mentions that a horizontal tricolor of green, red and blue was reported, but not adopted officially.
Green represents the Muslims, red represents the Croats, and blue represents the Serbs.
Both vertical and horizontal designs of that colours (in various orders) were mentioned here and there, but none of them came not even near to some official status. One green-red-blue vertical design (with unequal stripes) was proposed by Serbs at some point, but was not considered as serious. The only proposal that was near to serious consideration is a "Czech" pattern design, but as it seems now it is hardly to be accepted.

This flag was proposed after the first pluralistic elections by the Bosnian Democratic Union (BDU), a party that stayed insignificant till present day. The proposal was never adopted.

Flag of Bosnia and Herzegovina proposed by defenders of Sarajevo (reconstruction) - Image by Anes Sadiković, 18 October 2000
This proposal, featuring both the fleur-de-lis and the pan-Slavic white-blue-red colors, was actually used by some defenders of Sarajevo before the adoption of the official flag in 1992.
