Rare map of the area around Antivari (Bar, Montenegro), published by Ferrando Bertelli in Venice in his Civitatum aliquot insigniorum et locor[um], magis munitor[um].

The map shows the town during the Venetian-Ottoman Wars.    The town is depicted with a flag flying a cross, suggesting the town is shown prior to its fall in 1571.  On Monte Cisigno at the top right of the image, a tower flies a flag of the Ottoman empire.

Antiveri (Bar)

From 1443 to 1571, the region was ruled by the Venetian Empire, which called the town Antivari, which was a part of the Albania Veneta.

It was a town with its own coat of arms, flag, statute and mint. In 1571, the Ottomans captured Antivari and held the town until 1878.
