    Organization of Yugoslav Nationalists

    [img width=167 height=167]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/bd/ORJUNA_logo.svg” />

    ORJUNA, the commonly used acronym for Organizacija Jugoslavenskih Nacionalista, (Organization of Yugoslav Nationalists), was a political organization in Yugoslavia that existed from 1921 to 1929. It was the foremost fascist movement in interwar Yugoslavia. It supported Yugoslav nationalism, promoted the creation of a corporatist state, and attacked communism, democracy, J.ews, separatists, Croatian nationalists, and Serbian nationalists. Its leader was Milan Pribićević. It was created in 1921 by a fusion of pre-war youth organizations and was originally called Jugoslavenska Napredna Nacionalistička Omladina (Yugoslav Progressive Nationalist Youth).

    Pan-Slavism

    By ORJUNA ideology, the Slavs are destined with their power and culture to reborn decadent Europe, and with their "ideal soul" to perform their "great task of great importance for all mankind." In the Slavs lies great potential, but first they have to fix all their internal conflicts and to work together on their progress and freedom. Therefore Orjuna considered one of its main goals is to enter into "political and cultural ties with other Slavic nations, to propagate among them Slavic solidarity, to create conditions for a general political union of all Slavic countries, which will gave the strongest guarantee for the survival and progress Slavic peoples. " According to them, the Western nations are aware of these hidden forces among Slavs, and are "afraid of us Slavs and make the barriers on our every step, hindering our way forward." The Russian Revolution is the work "of capitalist America and Europe", which aims to prevent and stop the rise of Slavic race.
    In promoting Pan-Slavism was the most extreme Orjuna newspaper from Subotica "Princip", which sought not only a political alliance, but the unification of all Slavic countries, thus enabling the primacy of the Slavs in the world. To achieve this goal, by "Princip" is needed, among other things, Hungarians to be destroyed and erased their country "off the map", because it scored "as a wedge" between the Slavs, thus preventing their unification.

    Interesting read. Were they somehow affiliated with ZBOR, another Yugoslav Third Position movement?

    ORJUNA was banned in 1929, ZBOR was founded in 1935. Probably the membership of both movements was similar, since both movements were extremely pro-Yugoslav.

    * ORJUNA was founded 1912 by the Croatian lawyers, Ljubo Neontić, Marko Nani and Edo Bulat in Split, Croatia.
    [size=10pt]** Today the term Orjunaš (once meaning member of ORJUNA) is used as a slur among Croats for supporters of the Croatian monarchists, which opposed the nazis and the communists in the second world war, thus supporting the Jugoslavian Kingdom instead.[/size]

    It is the Slavic tricolour, as well as the flag of the Kingdom of Jugoslavia, without the coat of arms.

    Here are some pictures of the Slovenian Orjunaši [size=8pt](Skupina ob priliki razvitja prapora Orjuna Vič – Glince)[/size], with their flags and banners.

    Thanks Cvetinov.

    So, this on the right (Slavic tricolor with orjuna symbol) is the flag of the organization or am I wrong. I have doubts since in all pictures it cannot be seen well including this one with Slovenians..

    I don't know either, I can only observe from the pictures. The tricolour and the logo were surely used by the ORJUNA, as well as the skull flag.

    ZBOR was fashist type nationalists while ORJUNA memebers were etno-type nationalists. The later leader of the ZBOR became a nazi collaborationist.

    I am not sure if they were really a Nazi type nationalist since they were not attacking ***s nor Serbian nationalists (The Serbian nationalist were Yugoslav nationalists in the same). It is sure that they were radicall monarchist and they opposed to everybody who were against the monarchy. And yes, in Croatia the most prominent Orjuna memeber came from Split (which doesnt mean the majority of the poeple supported them). To the old people here they remained as brutal.

    Yes, in the year 1929. king Alexander established a personal dictatorship and banned all political parties and civil societies.

    No, the chetnicks and Draža Mihajlović did not opposed nazis. They were collaborating with them. And no, it is not a slur word for anything. Stop please flaming and deliver someinformation that are not true.

    That was quote from english Wikipedia (see link above). ORJUNA was in conflict with Serbian nationalist organizations like SRNAO (Serbian National Youth, former members of ORJUNA).

    Orjuna reminds me of Arjuna. ;D Somehow this is the first time i hear of this group. Its quite possible that they were on periphery of political activity. However this poster gives me some hints. It is evident from here that they had social meeting in Sokolski dom so they just might well be extreme wing of Sokoli.

    Would you please stop your Titoist commie propaganda. There are American and English books one can read (if not trusting our ones), even a Wikipedia article will offer you enough information if you take time to examine the references. I advise you to stop provoking on this issues, if apparently brainwashed by partisan-commie propaganda and unable to engage a conversation in a meaningful sense, without provoking. There were two movements in Yugoslavia, the white and the red, the red prevailed with the support of the SSSR, while the white had to be discredited, same as everywhere in Europe.

    * Naziv orjunaš ostao je u širokoj upotrebi, kao oznaka za Hrvata agresivnog jugoslavenskog nacionalista. – Croatian Wikipedia

    Read yourself through Večernji List, you'll find that term in almost every second article.
