Serbian Culture and Tradition Issue
The Republic of Serbian Krajina abbreviated RSK (Република Српска Крајина) was a self-proclaimed Serbian entity in Croatia that was established in 1991 by the Serbian population, with the support of the Yugoslav army, after Croatia declared independence on May 30, 1991. The enclaves were not recognized internationally but they became peace-keeping zones under U.N. supervision. The main areas were overrun by Croatian forces in 1995; a rump remained in existence in eastern Slavonia (Sremsko Baranjska Oblast) under UN administration until its peaceful re-incorporation into Croatia in 1998. Stanley Gibbons Stamps of the World lists 38 stamps issued by the republic between 1993 and 1995.
