Note that the Yugoslavia of the communist era dissolved in the early 1990s. Whereas clubs from all six constituent Republics had still participated in the 1990/91 league structure, by the start of the 1992/93 season, only two of these (Serbia and Montenegro) had remained. The departure of the Croatian clubs in 1991 effectively reduced the league to one dominated by Serbian clubs, although the country did not officially change name to Serbia and Montenegro until more than a decade later. Shortly after (in 2006), Montenegro opted out of the federation as well.
Note that prior to the first ever national championship of Yugoslavia in 1923, championships had already been organised in some constituent republics, e.g. in Croatia (1912, winners HASK Zagreb) and Serbia (1919/20 and 1920/21, both won by Beogradski SK).

Notes  This was a championship between representations of the 6 republics, the Yugoslav Army, and a representation of the autonomous province Vojvodina.  The Yugoslav FA decided that the last round of fixtures had to be replayed, after accusations that certain results had been fixed. Partizan, who had won the title with a 4-0 over Zeljeznicar Sarajevo, refused, after which the game was awarded 3-0 to Zeljeznicar, which gave Crvena zvezda the title. Crvena zvezda played in the 1986/87 European Champions Cup. However, after a sequence of legal processes, the original final table, with Partizan as champions, was officially recognized, in 1987.  Ten clubs had started the 1986/87 season with a deduction of 6 points, among them Partizan and Crvena zvezda, because of the events in the previous season. Vardar Skopje, who had not been deducted 6 points, won the title, and participated in the 1987/88 Champions Cup, but the points deduction was later annulled after more legal proceedings, and the title was given to Partizan, who headed the table with the deduction.
