Dredging another font from the long-lost depths. "Zastava" was my first font to be given a Top Pick, a not-so-subtle take on the Art Deco classic "Bifur." The naming convention for fonts at that time was translating random words into other languages and finding the "coolest" sounding one. "Zastava" being a Serbo-Croation/Slovene word for "flag/banner." This reinvention borrows from the old trend using another vexillology term, referring to the swallow tail design of the "K" and "M" among others. Please enjoy~

Oh wait, I accidently realized that this is my 2nd comments in the year. And I missed a chance for a good joke too...heheh.

Thank you all for the kind words and happy 2024 :)

elmoyenique, I'd be very surprised if you did find it~ Zastava no longer exists on Fonstruct, at some point I felt it was not up to the standards I set for it and was deleted along with quite a few other fonts, however a sample of it still floats around in Luc Devroye's archive
