Slovenia became part of the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (later Yugoslavia) in 1918. Issues for Slovenia within Yugoslavia are listed there in the catalogues. When Yugoslavia broke up, Slovenia held a referendum and declared independence on 25th June 1991.

Germany annexed parts of Slovenia in 1941 and thereafter German stamps were used. Italy occupied the capital (Ljubljana) and beyond as the Province of Lubiana. When Italy ended hostilities, Germany took over the province and renamed it Laibach.
Italy overprinted Yugoslavian stamps denominated in Yugoslav currency; Germany overprinted Italian stamps denominated in Italian currency.
Scott lists these as Ljubljana under Yugoslavia
