Flag of Fojnica, left, as prescribed, right, as used - Images by Željko Heimer, 14 January 2014
Fojnica is well-known by heraldists since in the Fojnica Franciscan monastery has preserved a 15th century armorial that is one of the most important sources for the medieval heraldry and genealogy of south-eastern Europe.

The symbols of Fojnica are prescribed by Decision Odluka o grbu i zastavi Općine Fojnica, adopted on 30 July 2003 by the Municipal Assembly.
The symbols are described in the Municipal Statutes Statut Općine Fojnica, adopted on 28 August 2008 and published on 15 October 2008 in the Municipal official gazette Službene novine Općine Fojnica, No. 4 (text).
The flag is prescribed as white with the coat of arms in the middle.
The new administration building flies a vertical version of the flag, with the municipality name inscribed above the coat of arms. This inscription is not mentioned in the description of either the coat of arms or the flag either in the Decision or in the Statutes.s/PS
