Verigar is the first postage stamp series issued in Slovenia after the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy at the end of World War I.
The stamp series was designed in late 1918 in Ljubljana during the short-lived State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs and issued on 3 January 1919 after the creation of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes.
The stamp design includes the abbreviated name of the State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs written in Cyrillic and Latin script (" " - "Dr ava SHS"). The stamp design, created by painter Ivan Vavpoti , also includes an image that represents a man who has broken the chains enslaving him; he stands in front of a rising sun. The scene symbolizes the freedom of the Slavic peoples from Austria-Hungary.
The name of the stamp series is derived from the Slovenian word veriga 'chain'.
On 19 March 1993, the Slovenian post office issued a new stamp series using the Verigar man to commemorate its 75th anniversary.
In 2008, Vavpoti 's verigar design was adopted as the symbol of the Slovenian Liberty Seminars.
