The national borders of the Independent State of Croatia, including the Sandžak territory, were drawn by hand on this detailed map of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and its neighbouring provinces from 1935. Following the Treaties of Rome of May 1941, the border between the Kingdom of Italy and the Independent State of Croatia was defined, and a large part of the Adriatic coast and its hinterland were ceded to Italy. This area was known as the First Zone, and was marked on the map by hand.
