Coat of arms of Tuzla-Podrinje Canton

The gates of Tuzla are the central element of the cantonal arms, and the red squares and crescent represent the two major nations of the canton - Croats and Bosniaks. The red squares are derived from the chequered Croatian arms. The blue drops under the doors represent the four main rivers of the region - Sava, Drina, Drinjaca and Spreca. The crown is a variation of the old Bosnian crown with fleurs-de-lis, the kind used among other arms, on the Austro-Hungarian coats of arms of Bosnia.
