Pocasna_ceremonijalna_odora_PZB_Dan_OSRH_280511_01.jpg
Croatia Honor Guard Battalion; black and white for officers, red for OR
A garish costume designed by President Tudjman according to crititcs; designed by Ike Škomrlj and Dženisa Medvedec according to Croatian Wikipeda. Based on ancient Croatian uniforms, uniforms motives with the Croatian nobility and aristocratic uniforms. Wiki claims that Tudjman gave minimal suggestion, so the writer must at least have heard the rumors.

Comments any one?

I suppose you can call this uniform theatrical, especially with its flashy colors of red and white. I rather like it though. Even if its a new design it gives a traditional impression. Normally I don't like scarves with uniforms, but these scarves are cravats, which have a symbolic meaning: Cravats came into fashion 1650s in imitation of linen scarves worn by Croatian mercenaries in the French army in the Thirty Years War.

The Slovak guard of honour is also wearing a uniform designed after a national costume, in this case a folk costume. "The historical uniform was inspired by the uniform of the Slovak volunteers from 1848 [during the national uprising against Hungary and the Habsburgs]. The colour scheme is taken from the Slovak tricolour. The national elements are accentuated by the feathered hat and the decorative ornamentation created from braid, which is inspired by motifs drawn from Slovak folk costume. The uniform design was created by Mrs. Mgr. Ľubica Jarjabková and Mgr. Helena Jurikovičová." https://www.prezident.sk/?guard-of-honour-1

Well, the design is based on a defining event in Slovak national history, so its difficult to fault it. If it wasn't for the goose step, the hats would make me think of Tiroler Schützen. But they are of course also dressed in a folk costume turned into a uniform.

Below is the blue full dress uniform, very much looking like the uniform of the Czech castle guards.

Historical Uniforms: Bulgaria and Russia

National Guards Unit of Bulgaria
According to Wikipedia: "The scarlet Guards' uniform was created in 1883 and includes elements of Bulgarian national traditions and symbols. It has remained essentially unchanged throughout the political changes of the last 130 years."

Presidential Regiment of Russia (Kremlin Regiment)
"The basis for the ceremony military uniform of the Cavalry was the parade uniform of the Life Guards of the Dragoon Guards. The ceremony uniform Kremlin’s Dragoon has been joined with the infantry uniform of the Squadron of the Honor Guard, as the dragoons were initially allowed in both infantry and cavalry." http://www.kremlin-military-tattoo.ru/e ... of-russia/

This uniform is based on parade uniform model 1909 that in itself seem to be inspired by the Russian uniforms from the War of 1812.

"Both, the old and the new uniforms, are based on the uniforms of the Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization (IMRO) revolutionaries with some details of the other periods of the history of the Republic of Macedonia. Influence over the new design had the revolutionary Dedo Iljo Maleshevski, ancient Macedonian uniforms and the uniforms of the Macedonian regiment from Ukraine"
