Serbia first participated at the Olympic Games in 1912. Serbia returned to the Olympics as an independent team at the 2008 Summer Olympics. From 1920 to the 1992 Winter Olympics Serbian athletes participated as part of the Yugoslavian team. At the 1992 Summer Olympics they participated as Independent Olympic Participants as their nation was under United Nations sanctions. The continuing sanctions meant that no Serbians competed at the 1994 Winter Olympics. Sanctions were mostly lifted in 1995. From the 1996 Summer Olympics to the 2006 Winter Olympics they participated as part of the Serbia and Montenegro team.

The best example to illustrate the situation is the seven-time Olympian shooter and the 1988 gold medalist Jasna Šekarić competed under four different banners at her twenty-year Olympic career. She started under the flag of Yugoslavia in 1988, then she competed as an Independent Participant in 1992 and under the flag of Serbia and Montenegro from 1996 to 2004. In 2008, she represented Serbia.
