The old flag of Yugoslavia. In use from 1945 - 1991

Yugoslavia was created by the allies after WWI and called the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes. It was renamed Yugoslavia in 1929.

In March of 1941, Yugoslavia joined the Tripartite Pact. Two days later a British sponsored coup was launched. Germany sent troops to Yugoslavia and bombed Belgrade for three days.

Croatia declared its independence and signed the Tripartite Pact. Macedonia became a client nation of Bulgaria, while Montenegro and Slovenia became client nations of Italy. Serbia remained independent and neutral. In 1945 the Soviet Union invaded and Yugoslavia was reconstituted as a communist nation. The same flag was re-instated, but with a red Soviet star in the middle.

The former Yugoslavia is now seven different countries.

This tri-color was adopted as the flag of Yugoslavia because it is also the Pan-Slavic tricolor. This flag was adopted by the Pan-Salvic Conference of 1848 in Prague. The colors red, white, and blue are the "Pan-Slavic colors" and are used as the color scheme for many flags in Eastern Europe today.

3'x5' flags are 3ft x 5ft, 36in. by 60in, 91cm by 152cm, 1yard by 1.7yard. This is the most common size flag you see hanging on porches, small flag poles, hanging at festivals, and inside of bars and restaurants.
