Flag of Kragujevac - Image by Ivan Sarajčić, 1 November 2005
The flag of Kragujevac (municipal website) is made of a white square with a hawk standing on a golden oak branch and the escutcheon from the coat of arms of Serbia in canton.
The hawk (kraguj, kobac) recalls the name of the town, making the arms canting.
The canton recalls that Kragujevac was once the Royal capital of Serbia.

Flag of Žeželj - Image by Ivan Sache, 5 January 2013
The mountaineering club "Žeželj" (Planinarsko Drustvo "Žeželj", website) is based in Kragujevac. Founded on 1 March 1992, the club is named for Žeželjj (481 m), one of the hills surrounding the town.
The flag of the club (photo) is blue with the club's emblem in the middle.
The emblem of the club shows a green mountain with two snow-covered peaks, under a blue sky lit by a yellow sun partially hidden by a white cloud. The emblem is surrounded by a yellow ring inscribed with the names of the club and of the town, at the top and bottom, respectively, in blue Cyrillic letters. "Serbia" is written in white letters in the base of the mountain, this writing being omitted from the self-standing emblem.
