Flag of Bileća - Image by Ivan Sarajčić, 20 February 1999
The symbols of Bileća, designed by the Serbian Heraldry Society, were approved in December 1998.
The flag is the crest of the coat of arms of the Kosača family, as shown in Genealogical tables and coats of arms of the Serb dynasties and nobility [mrd87].
Stjepan Vukčić Kosača held in 1448 the title of Duke of St. Sava, in Serbian Herceg od sv. Save; the name of Herzegovina was taken from the medieval Kosača state.
