Šargovac (Serbian Cyrillic: Шарговац) is a village in the municipality of Banja Luka (present-day Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina).[1]

During World War II, on 7 February 1942, Ustaše paramilitaries, led by a Franciscan monk, Miroslav Filipović (aka Tomislav Filipović-Majstorović), killed more than 2,300 Serbs (among them 500 children)[2] in Drakulić, Motike, and Šargovac.
