Changes of Administration
Serbia joined with other regions after WW1 and became Yugoslavia in 1929. Yugoslavia dissolved in 1992, leaving the entity of Serbia and Montenegro and in 2006, Montenegro left that federation. Two sets of stamps designed for S&M were released after the split but only used in Serbia: the stamp shown, depicting the Battle of Mishar, a painting by Paja Jovanovic, was the first designed for Serbia.
