What's up with the symbols of current Republic of Serbia? Royal crown and lilies on the coat of arms, crowns on the awards?

There's no monarchy, do these royal items really belong to the state seal/awards?

Many republics also have flag and/or coat of arms with crown, orb and scepter, just to name a few, Russia, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Hungary, Romania, Czech Republic...

Unfortunately that's the case with most of the modern era decorations. Still, compared with orders of some other ex-Yu republics looks pretty decent.

Agreed! Most of the Croatian awards look like they were designed by a bunch of kids. I wish our governments had consulted with collectors and artists before making awards. Also I wish our governments had consulted us on other more important matters. :D

I wasn't thinking about Croatia in particular, some of our neighbors have far worse looking decorations, don't want to offend anyone so I won't mention any names :)
