The flag of Serbia and Montenegro was originally adopted on 27 April 1992 as the flag of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and was used as such from 1992 to 2003. After the country was renamed to the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro in February 2003 it remained in use as the national flag until the country's dissolution in June 2006.[5]

Aside from a different aspect ratio, it is essentially the same flag that used by the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (1943–1992) but without the red star in the center, and was effectively like an inverted Dutch flag.[6]
