BOSNIAN / BOSANSKI



When: on July 29th, 2014 at 11am
Where: Bowling Green Park - at Broadway & Morris St, downtown Manhattan



Large scale Bosnian and American flags will be raised high over downtown Manhattan in this first commemorative annual Flag Raising Ceremony organized by the Bosnian American Community of New York. This year’s ceremony coincides with “Danom Sehida” - the day of remembrance of those fallen for their country. This day is commemorated within Bosnian communities around the world, on the second day of Muslim holiday - Eid al-Fitr.

National anthems of United States and Bosnia will be played during the ceremony.
Speakers representing Bosnian American Community will address those present.

This is the first Flag Raising Ceremony ahead of next year’s 20th Year Srebrenica Genocide Commemoration on July 11th. Bosnian Americans in NY intend to make this a tradition, which will take place every 11th of July, going forward, as a permanent reminder of All Genocide Victims.

Bosnian American Community will also take this opportunity to remember American diplomats who have lost their lives on a mission to secure peace and, end genocide in Bosnia.
