Overview

In 1945 was the time when Partisan movement still had to collaborate with the Yugoslav Royal Government, which was in exile in London since 1941, and legal status of the government in Yugoslavia (and in Croatia too) was a little bit "fluid". So, the name of new state was Demokratska Jugoslavija (Democratic Yugoslavia) and a little bit later Demokratska federativna Jugoslavija (Democratic Federative Yugoslavia). Such transitional period existed until November 29, 1945 when the Constitutional Assembly declared Federativna narodna republika Jugoslavija (Federative People's Republic o Yugoslavia).
The first emblem was found it on an old document, issued immediately after the liberation of Zagreb (May 8, 1945). It is a seal with an inscription Federalna dr~ava Hrvatska (Federal State of Croatia) over a coat-of-arms in the centre and Tehnički fakultet, Zagreb (Technical Faculty, Zagreb) below. The another one was pictured on a tax stamp. Note the difference in type of the star. That means that they changet it very shortly after the war. The seal is issued earlier.
That means that in the same time each republic become Narodna republika (People's Republic), so Croatia too and that
this seal was not in use anymore.
