Arago: Flag of Yugoslavia

Flag of Yugoslavia

The flag of Yugoslavia is featured on the ninth stamp in the Overrun Countries Series, issued on October 26, 1943. In March 1941, under threat of destruction, Prince Regent Paul of Yugoslavia signed a pact with Germany, effectively joining the Axis. However, a violent popular revolt led to Paul's ouster, and left the pact in limbo. Thereupon Germany invaded Yugoslavia in April 1941 beginning a brutal and oppressive occupation.
