Flag of Laktaši, horizontal and vertical versions - Images by Željko Heimer, 22 January 2013
The flag of Laktaši is prescribed by Decision Odluka o zastavi opštine Laktaši, adopted on 19 July 2007 by the Municipal Council and published on 20 July 2007 in the Municipal official gazette Službeni glasnik opštine Laktaši, No. 5 (text). The rules of use of the flag and arms are prescribed by the companion Decision Odluka o upotrebi simbola opštine Laktaši, adopted the same day and published in the same issue of the gazette.
The coat of arms is set in the middle of the 1:2, red flag, so that the height of the coat of arms is 3/5 of the flag's width. The ratio of the coat of arms' width to its height is 4:5. For the vertical flag, the height of the coat of arms prescribed for the horizontal flag is retained, but the coat of arms is rotated 90 degrees. The colours are prescribed as:
- Red: CMYK (%) 2-95-100-0;
- Blue: CMYK (%) 99-100-15-8;
- Golden yellow: CMYK (%) 18-25-65-0.
The flag was adopted in a public contest held in 2007 (image of the proposal awarded the second prize).

Coat of arms of Laktaši - Image by Željko Heimer, 22 January 2013
The coat of arms of Laktaši is prescribed by Decision Odluka o grbu opštine Laktaši, adopted on 13 April 2010 and published on 14 April 2010 in Službeni glasnik opštine Laktaši, No. 3 (text).
The decision prescribes a new drawing of the coat of arms, with new colour specification in Pantone CMYK, RGB, HSB, Lab and Hex:
- Red: CMYK (%) 0-100-85-20, Pantone 186;
- Blue: CMYK (%) 100-75-0-20, Pantone 288;
- Golden yellow: CMYK (%) 0-20-60-20, Pantone 874;
- White: 0-0-0-0.
The amended design follows the report of a working group on the production of a Book of graphical standards and on the standardization of the coat of arms Zaključak o prihvatanju Informacije o izradi Knjige grafičkih standarda, adopted on 29 May 2009 and published on 1 June 2009 in Službeni glasnik opštine Laktaši, No. 6 (text). The design of the coat of arms is credited to Desimir Miljić, although it is not clear whether he actually designed the original coat of arms.
However, the Decision includes the very same description of the coat of arms as found in the 2005 Municipal Statutes.
