This is an animated GIF that shows the stages of the breakup of the SFR of Yugoslavia in the 90's and 2000's. The map based off Morwen's map of the divisions of the SFRY, Which is licensed by the GFDL. The source for the dates of independence is the CIA World Factbook. These maps do not now show the Inter-Entity Boundary Line (IEBL) and/or the entities that are separated by it. The IEBL has been drawn based on this CIA map; the Brčko District has been drawn based on Image:BH municipality location.gif, by user:Ante Perkovic. I might add them in the future. Since the original map was GFDL, this image is as well.

A map depicting Kosovo's final status is ready once it takes effect.

Changelog for versions 2/3

Here are some changes in this new build of the map:

  • The Kosovo boundary has been given a shade of red instead of the previous UN blue since they are a province of Serbia under UNIMIK control.
  • Montenegro's colour has been changed to a golden shade close to what's on the flag.
  • The IEBL and the Brčko District has been redrawn because I deleted the original map; the colour for the Republika Srpska is lighter.
  • The dates are at the top left hand corner of the map instead of the bottom.
  • I have taken a new approach as to the boundaries. Each part of Yugoslavia now shows the boundary on the maps starting the year they broke away. I feel this change helps readers understand the the breakup more better.
  • The SFRY and the FRY are in different shades since the FRY was never accepted as the successor to the former by the UN.
  • The colors for the entities of BiH have been removed as not to confuse people into think that they are independent themselves. What remains is the IEBL with both entites in green.
  • The Kosovo boundry is finally in hash marks!
  • The Brčko District has been removed. The sale is too small to show accuracy.
