It can be seen on the coat of arms of the city next to other decorations awarded to Belgrade:

Order of the Star of Karađorđe with Swords

Belgrade is not the only city awarded with that order, there are 8 of them. What makes Belgrade special is the fact that it was the only one who received the order during the war! Rest of them got awarded 3 decades later! And in case someone wonders why exactly 8 cities received the order the answer is quite simple, every republic had to receive one and same goes for the two autonomous provinces within Serbia (6 republics + 2 autonomous provinces = 8 orders).

They were awarded in the following order

1. Belgrade (Serbia) 20.10.1944.

2. Ljubljana (Slovenia) 24.04.1970.

3. Drvar (B&H) 17.05.1974.

4. Cetinje (Montenegro) 07.05.1975

5. Novi Sad (AP Vojvodina) 07.05.1975.

6. Prilep (Macedonia) 07.05.1975.

7. Priština (AP Kosovo & Metohija) 07.05.1975.

8. Zagreb (Croatia) 16.09.1975.

Marshal's badge (Маршалски знак).

I believe this badge was made in 1946 to be worn exclusively by Tito. It was designed by Antun Augustinčić and made out of platinum, gold, brilliants and rubies!

Thanks for the link, The marshal's star is an absolutely amazing piece of workmanship, do we know who manufactured it as I didn't think post-war manufacture but could be of such high quality.

    • 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.
