Slavonski Brod (until 1934 - Brod na Savi) was granted coat of arms on late XVIII or early XIX century, certainly before 1820, that was basically the same as the one used today. On the shield Azure above the wavy bar Argent there is a heron holding a fish in the beak and a rotulus (scroll) in dexter leg all Or, followed with a crescent Azure and five six-pointed stars (3:2) Or in corners. The name of the city could be inscribed in arch under the lower edge of the shield.

I was contacted by the webmaster of the site of Slavonski Brod (capital of Brodsko-posavska County), pointing me to the page with description of SB coat of arms and flag at <>.
Unfortunately English text is not available yet. Therefore I translate it here:
"The Coat of Arms of the City of Slavonski Brod
The coat of arms is in shape of semi-circular shield, Azure over the wavy bar Argent a heron holding a fish in the beak and a scroll in dexter leg all Or. Above it in dexter a crescent Argent, in sinister five six-pointed stars in two rows (3:2) Or. If the coat of arms is used with the name of the city, the text is inscribed in arch under the lower edge of the shield.
The Flag of the City of Slavonski Brod
The flag is made in ratio 1:2, and for hoisting on a mast, in ratio 2:6. The flag is white, that is, in the colour of natural silk. The coat of arms of the City of Slavonski Brod is in the middle. The ceremonial flag of the City is in ratio 1:2 made of natural silk, doubled with stright edges without border (fringe), with the coat of arms made of silk combined with embroidery or embroidery in gold.
The ways and conditions of the usage of the coat of arms and the flag of the City are determined by a special decision according to the law."
