Bosnia and Herzegovina sent athletes to the Summer Olympic Games under its own flag for the first time in 1992. Bosnian athletes competed under the Yugoslav flag (see Yugoslavia at the Olympics) until the breakup of that country.

The Olympic Committee of Bosnia and Herzegovina was formed in 1992 and recognized in 1993.[1]
