This flag was used on 14 July 2007 in a ceremony at the Monument to France, which was erected in 1930 in Belgrad as a symbol of gratefulness to France for aid during the First World War.

Serbian-American volunteers (1917)

[Flag of American volunteers]

Flag of the Serbian-American volunteers, 1917 - Image by Ivan Sarajčić, 5 June 1999

This is another military flag from the Military Museum in Belgrade. It was used by Serbian-American volunteers in 1917.
Inscription reads: Third St. Vitus' Day Company of Serbian volonteers from the United States of America.

Ivan Sarajčić, 5 June 1999


Unidentified flag

The International Geography (London, 1911) shows a very complicated flag of Serbia, which can be described as follows:

Tricolore: red - blue - white
Center: armorial drape and crown; in the middle of that the coat of arms of Serbia.
Around the flag alternating triangles in red and blue.
Above and below: four blue, four red.
Left and right: four blue, two red.
In the four corners: four red lozenges (elongated).
The source is a small image in black and white, so I might have missed something. It looks like the flag of the reigning monarch.

Regarding the coat of arms, I noticed three differences with the state flag:
- The crown on top is larger
- The crown on top of the shield is smaller
- The drapings between the crowns are a bit wider.

Jarig Bakker, 11 December 1998

The Serbian military unit flags from the First World War did include some ornamented border, but were square, and with the state arms on a disc.

Željko Heimer, 10 December 1998
