Flag of Jasenovac - Image by Željko Heimer, 7 June 2007
The municipality of Jasenovac is located at the confluence of river Una into the Sava, about 50 km south-east of Sisak. It has been heavily destructed during the Serbian occupation in the 1990s, but it is probably most well-known as the site of the largest Ustaša-run concentration camp during the Second World War.
