The Republic flag is also the flag of the Army of Montenegro.
The Millennium Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge that spans Morača River, in Podgorica. It is 140 metres (460 feet) in length. It was opened on 13 July 2005, Montenegro's National Day, and quickly became one of the city's most prominent landmarks. The bridge connects the Bulevard of Ivan Crnojević in city center and July 13th street in the new part of city, thus relieving the other congested bridges connecting city center with densely populated districts over the Morača river.
