Yugoslavia, Kingdom. A Battle Flag of the Submarine "Nebojša"

(Ratna zastava podmornice „Nebojša“); A high quality rayon flag, with blue, white and red sections sewn together, in the center (on both sides) extremely well executed Royal Yugoslav Coat of Arms, hand embroidered in various colors in rayon threads; the front end section complete with a rope, and additionally hand embroidered dedication in blue threads "Nebojši žene grada Šibenika - 1928"; flag measures approximately 150cm x 85cm, in extremely fine condition, and with a dedication, one-of-a-kind. Only few such flags are known to exists, and are in the museums.

 

Footnote: the flag was without a doubt given by the citizens of town/port of Šibenik on one of the visits the submarine made during the tour of Adriatic Sea in 1928.

The Yugoslav submarine Nebojša was the second of the Hrabri-class diesel-electric submarines built by the Vickers-Armstrong Naval Yard on the River Tyne in the United Kingdom, for the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (later Yugoslavia) and was launched in 1927. Her design was based on that of the British L-class submarine of World War I, and she was built using parts originally assembled for a Royal Navy L-class submarine that was never built. She was armed with six bow-mounted 533 mm (21 in) torpedo tubes, two 102 mm (4 in) guns and one machine gun, and could dive to 60 metres (200 ft).

Prior to World War II Nebojša participated in cruises to several Mediterranean ports. During the German-led Axis invasion of Yugoslavia in April 1941, she evaded capture by Italian forces, and joined British naval forces in the Mediterranean where she performed a training role. After the war she was taken over by the new Yugoslav government and renamed Tara. She was eventually stricken in 1954, and scrapped in 1958.
