Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia T-Shirt
The coat of arms of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia featured six torches surrounded by wheat and burning together in one flame; this represented brotherhood and unity of the six republics forming Yugoslavia: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia. The date imprinted is 29 November 1943 - on this date the Anti-Fascist Council of National Liberation of Yugoslavia met in Jajce on its second meeting and established the basis for post-war organisation of the country, establishing a federation (this date was celebrated as Republic Day after the Second World War). The original coat of arms (1943-1963) featured five torches, representing five nations of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Croatians, Macedonians, Montenegrins, Serbs and Slovenes. The Muslims weren't represented as a nation and neither were the many other ethnic groups such as Albanians, Germans, Hungarians, Rusyns, and Turks, so the coat of arms was redesigned in 1963 to represent Yugoslavian republics instead of nations.
