The flag of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia consisted of three equal horizontal bands colored in pan-Slavic colors, blue (top), white and red, with a yellow-bordered red star at the flag's center.

The changes mostly affected the red star in the center: it was enlarged, its shape was changed, and its borders were outlined in yellow.
