Flag of SDA, two versions - Images by Željko Heimer, 27 February 2005, & Tomislav Todorović, 21 January 2014
SDA is the main party of the Bosniaks, established and led by Alija Izetbegović until his death.
Željko Heimer, 27 February 2005
Article 9 of the party's Statutes adopted in 2001, as well as Article 12 of the Statutes adopted in 2005 (text), prescribes that the party's symbols shall be adopted by a decision of the Main Board of the party.
The flag used by SDA at least since 2001 is horizontally divided green-white-green with a silver crescent and a fleur-de-lis and the green-blue-red initials "SDA". This flag was reportedly produced in Croatia for SDA around 2000.
The flag is also used without the crescent and fleur-de-lis; this flag has been shown at the party's website since, at least, early 2009.
The ratio of the flag's width to its length is specified as 1:2, and that of three fields as 1:3:1. The size of the letters is not specified, but they are visibly larger than on the flag with the crescent and fleur-de-lis.
