Jovan Jovanović Zmaj (November 24, 1833 - June 3, 1904) was one of the best-known Serbian poets. He was a physician by profession, like his literary predecessor writer Jovan Stejić (1803-1853).
He wrote in many of the genres of poetry, including love, lyric, patriotic, political, youth's, etc. But he is best known for his children's poetry. His nursery rhymes have entered the Serbian national consciousness and people sing them to their children even without knowing who wrote them.
His nickname Zmaj (Змај, meaning "dragon") derives from May Assembly date, 3 May 1848, in Serbian Cyrillic: 3.мај / Змај.
