Decorations of the Republic of Serbia (2009)

Recommended Posts

Golden Medal for Merits awarded to the 250th Air Defense Missile Brigade on November 24, 2015. That unit managed to shoot down F117 and F16 during 1999. It's one of the rare units awarded with Order of the People's Hero, its ribbon is incorporated in brigade's emblem.

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...

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 :)

    • 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.
