The Sava Banovina or Sava Banate ( ) was a province (banovina) of the Kingdom of Yugoslaviamarker between 1929 and 1939. This province consisted of much of present-day Croatiamarker (the areas of historical Croatia and Slavoniamarker) and was named for the Sava River. The capital city of the Sava Banovina was Zagrebmarker.


According to the 1931 Constitution of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia,
The Sava Banovina is bounded on the north, as far as the river Mura, by the ... boundary of the Drava Banovina. Thereafter the boundary of this Banovina follows the river Mura, then the State frontier with Hungarymarker to the point where this leaves the Drava; from this point the boundary of the Banovina follows the course of the Drava, then that of the Danube, as far as the northern boundary of the district of Ilokmarker. From this point the boundary of the Banovina leaves the Danube and goes towards the Sava, following the eastern boundaries of the district, of Vukovarmarker, Vinkovcimarker, and Županjamarker; taking in these districts. It then follows the course of the river Sava to the mouth of the river Unamarker, then the course of the river Una as far as the north-eastern boundary of the district of Dvormarker (south-west of Kostajnicamarker). From this point to the Adriaticmarker (Morlach Channel) the boundary of the Banovina follows the southern boundaries of the districts of Kostajnica, Petrinjamarker, Glinamarker, and Virginmostmarker (Gvozd), then the south-eastern boundary of the district of Vojnićmarker and the eastern boundaries of the districts of Slunjmarker, Korenicamarker and Donji Lapacmarker. The boundary then passes along the southern boundary of the districts of Gračacmarker and Gospić, which it includes. From the Adriatic coast the boundary follows the gorge of Ljubač and the canal of Nova Povljana, passes between the islands of Maun and Planik, to rejoin, north of the islands of Olibmarker and Silbamarker, the State frontier on the Adriatic.


In 1939, the Sava Banovina was merged with the Littoral Banovina and parts of neighboring provinces to create the Banovina of Croatia.

In 1941, the World War II Axis Powers occupied the former area of the Sava Banovina. Small areas were annexed by Fascist Italy and Hungarymarker with the remainder becoming a part of the Independent State of Croatiamarker. Following World War II, the region was made a part of Croatiamarker within a federal Communist Yugoslaviamarker.
