Wikipedia, 13 Feb. 2015: under Šamac, Bosnia and Herzegovina (Bosanski Šamac/Šamac is a town and municipality in the northeastern part of the Republika Srpska and it's also a part of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, located on the right bank of the Sava river; across the river is Slavonski Šamac in Croatia; the town lies on an important strategic position, between the Republika Srpska and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, near Brčko; as with most other places under Serbian control, Srpska authorities removed the "Bosnian" adjective from the town's official name and changed it to "Srpski" meaning Serbian; Bosniaks and Bosnian Croats continued to refer to it by its historical name of "Bosanski Šamac" causing tension among the inhabitants; a court order had the official name changed to simply Šamac, removing any ethnic divisions in its previous names)
