The thing with the double-headed eagle is actually a huge misunderstanding, says Milos Jovic (38) over a beer after work in a hip Belgrade bar. «Have you ever looked at the Serbian flag? There is also a double-headed eagle on it, just like the Albanian one.»

Both countries would have put the East Roman imperial symbol on their flags as early as the 19th century. Serbia as well as Albania. So when Granit Xhaka (30) or Xherdan Shaqiri (31) run around on the football field and mime the double-headed eagle with their hands, then he’s happy as a Serb, says Jovic from Belgrade. “Anyone who mimics the double-headed eagle also indirectly shows us respect.”
