The president of Serbia and Montenegro (Serbian: Председник Србије и Црне Горе) was the head of state of Serbia and Montenegro. From its creation in 1992 until 2003, when the country was reconstituted as a confederacy (state union), the head of state was known as the president of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.

In 2006 the office was abolished as the state union was dissolved, with Serbia and Montenegro becoming independent countries.
