HAVE A BUNCH OF VENETIAN UNIFORMS.
Some stuff I feel I should explain: Oltremarini were the non-Italian members for the Venetian army/navy and the caribiners, along with the dragoons are the sort of soldier that the high ranking Venetians would have had as guards and such.
It’s bad that I’m not sure if the Albanian one is Albanian-Albanian or Venetian-Albanian. /sob

Fun times with history about the Pan-Slavic colors. The red-white-blue tricolor was first adopted by Russia, after being inspired by the naval ensign of the Dutch.
- Russia was the first to adopt the colors in 1700 in the order white-blue-red, the red taking the place of the color orange in the Dutch flag.
- Serbia followed next in 1835, seeking to show its fellowship with the Russians. Its flag was in the order red-blue-white, or the opposite of the Russian flag. They were also inspired by the French tricolor. Later on, their coat of arms would be charged on the flag.
- In 1848 ,the Austrian provinces were the next to adopt the Pan-Slavic colors, inspired by the Serbians, who they looked toward as beacons of independence.:
- Croatia used the same order as the original Dutch flag, once again replacing orange with red: red-white-blue
- Both the Slovaks and Slovenes used the same order as Russia: white-blue-red
- Bulgaria adopted theirs in 1878, using the same pattern as the Russians, but replacing blue with green. White-green-red.
- The Montenegrins adopted the same flag as the Serbians in 1918, charging it with the royal crown and initials.
- The Czechs adopted a completely different, triangular flag in red-white-blue in 1920.
[I hadn’t realized how many people from this RP circle had reblogged my stuff. :’)
SO I GUESS I’LL HAVE TO PUT THIS ON HERE NOW, TOO.]
Today Croatia has three main centres of lace production, all of which have a long tradition of lacemaking: Lepoglava in Hrvatsko Zagorje (bobbin lace), the island of Pag (needlepoint lace) and the island of Hvar (aloe lace).
Long story short Danica (Pag Island) and Pavica (Hvar Island) are badasses.
