Pale continues to be referred to as SerbSarajevo due to the fact that, after the Dayton Peace Accords, Sarajevo-proper was designated as belonging to the Muslim-Croat Federation, but Bosnian Serbs, having lived in Sarajevo for generations themselves, wanted to retain some claim to their city.
The Pale or the English Pale comprised a region in a radius of 20 miles around Dublin which the English in Ireland gradually fortified against incursion from Gaelic Ireland.
Pale as a term for an area of restricted settlement also appears outside Ireland: notably in the western portions of Tsarist Russia, once designated as the "Jewish Pale" - see Pale of Settlement, and historically, for the region around Calais while it was under English dominion.
In heraldry, a pale is a vertical ordinary and per pale a vertical division of the field.
