Like some of the ex-Soviet countries last - "democratic" Yugoslavia also used the "old designs".

RE Taras' 169 post above

The Republic of Italy's Order of Merit insignia change [Decree of the President of the Republic No. 173 of 30 March 2001] reportedly stemmed from then PM Amato's fascination with the Italian royal Order of the Crown.

Off topic--but see Owain's discussion of the Sultanat Kathiri decoration's insignia basis or 'descent' from the "Schlaraffia" German society insignia.

Forum member 'oamotme' published a study of Kathiri awards, including reference to design similarities with "Schlaraffia" materials. Don't remember if his work appeared here or in an OMRS or OMSA publication. Due to possible copyright issues, suggest you get directly in touch with him for complete information. Perhaps he could post a digest in the Arab states thread?

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
