Montenegro stamps

P=have O=don’t have it

zastava

A former kingdom in the Balkans, situated north of Albania. Montenegro became independent in 1452 and for centuries successfully resisted the Turks, who held the rest of southeastern Europe. In January 1916, the Austrians occupied Montenegro, and the government fled to Bordeaux, France, where overprinted French stamps were used for a time. In November 1918, King Nicholas was deposed in a pro-Serbian coup, and Montenegro was united with Serbia. During World War II, Montenegro was re-established as an Italian protectorate. In 1943-44, it was occupied by Germany, which overprinted Yugoslavian stamps and issues of the Italian administration. After the German defeat, Montenegro was again occupied by Yugoslavia, which initially overprinted issues of the Italian Montenegrin regime. Since 1945, regular Yugoslavian stamps have been used. With the breakup of the Yugoslav state in the 1990s, Montenegro has remained in partnership with Serbia as part of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, declared in 1992.

Yugoslavia became Serbia & Montenegro Feb.4, 2003 with each section of the country maintaining and operating their own currency.  

Upon the dissolution of the union of Serbia and Montenegro in 2006, Montenegro began issuing its own stamps once more.

Stamp Day - Simo Popović, 1846-1921

 Inside #???: Montenegro essay for the first postage stamp

Duke Simo Popović is a famous writer, author and politician. He stood out as Secretary of Prince Nikola, who gave him the title of the Duke. He represented Montenegro in various diplomatic and political missions. He was also the governor of the Montenegrin-coastal region. In the history of Montenegro postal services, Duke Simo Popović was recorded as the author of the first design for the postage stamp.

In his Memoirs, he says: "The draft of the first postage stamp, which was created in Vienna, is mine. The Prince requested that I design a stamp, he liked it and ordered Subotić to send it to Vienna to make a stamp based on it."

Lou Wrote: Behind the Popovic image is probably an essay of his proposed stamp design. Note that what are wreaths on the issued stamps are wordings on the portions seen behind Popovic. I was unsuccessful in finding any references to Popovic showing his essay.
