The flag of Yugoslavia was the official flag of the Yugoslav state from 1918 to 1992. The flag's design and symbolism are derived from the Pan-Slavic movement, which ultimately led to the unification of the Southern Slavs and the creation of a united south-Slavic state in 1918.
The design of the flag was three equal horizontal bands of blue, white, and red. The flag was first used by the Kingdom of Yugoslavia from 1918 to 1943. A red star was placed in its center by the victorious Yugoslav Partisans in World War II, and was used until the breakup of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s. Today, the flag still holds meaning to those nostalgic of Yugoslavia.
