    Order of St. Sava
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    The Order of St. Sava was a decoration instituted by the order King Milan I of Serbia in 1883. The Order of St. Sava originally was established to recognize civilians for meritorious achievements in the arts and sciences. In 1914 a change was made permitting military personnel to receive the honor for military merit.

    There is also a fraternal organization with a similar name, the Loyal Order of St. Sava, organized for social interactions among Serbian American residents of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

    Still another Order of St.Sava is conferred by the Orthodox Church of Serbia.

    Saint Archbishop Sava (Serbian: Свети Сава, Sveti Sava; (c. 1175, Ras - January 14, 1235, Trnovo, Bulgaria), baptised name Rastko Nemanjić (Serbian: Растко Немањић) was the youngest son of Serbian ruler Stefan Nemanja, Eastern Orthodox monk, first archbishop of Serbian Orthodox Church, diplomat, writer, law giver and founder of several important medieval monasteries. He heavily influenced Serbian medieval literature and art.

    He is widely considered as one of the most important figures of Serbian history and he is canonized and venerated by the Serbian Orthodox Church. Also his life and personal devotion has been interpreted in many artistic works from the middle ages to modern times. The Temple of Saint Sava in Belgrade is his major shrine and the largest Eastern Orthodox church

    Dennis,

    Those were my thoughts as well. The same separate label that you posted above (Rain Proofed) appeared in the same uniform along with the previous label I posted.
