A Second War Ustasha Lika Cap

This is a traditional Lika cap likely stemming from the Lika region of Croatia, with a Ustasha patch sewn into the top of the cap and the Croatian Coat of Arms embroidered directly beneath it. The fabric of the top section is crafted out of wool. The sides are also crafted out of wool but are lined on the inside with a navy coloured fabric. The Lika was and still is a vital part of the region’s national dress, symbolizing the suffering of the Serbian people in the Ottoman Empire and the Battle of Kosovo. Traditionally, the bright red colour of the fabric represents the blood spilled in the struggle for Serbian freedom, while the black decorative stitching represents the those who have suffered in the conflict in the circumference, such as mothers, sisters, and daughters. This Lika likely belong to a supporter of the Ustasha or a Ustasha Youth Group during the period when the Ustasha fought for an independent Croatia. Measurements: 15.5cm diameter, approximately 54cm circumference, 5.5cm tall. Considerable mothing on the top surface of the cap with a small 2cm rip in the top lining of the Lika connecting the trip to the top, and some threads coming loose due to age. Overall fine condition.
