In 1271 Svetoslav Surinj beat the Venetian Doge, Peter II, in a chess match and won the right to rule the Dalmatian towns of Yugoslavia.  A chessboard appears in the Croation coat of arms.  The first Yugoslav championship was held in 1945, and won by Peter Trifunovic.  In 1950, Yugoslavia issued its first chess stamp.
