Bosnia & Herzegovina Statehood Day 2021 – Exactly 78 years ago today, hundreds of representatives from across Bosnia and Herzegovina gathered to form a council that established independent statehood and declared equality for all citizens. To commemorate this anniversary, today’s Doodle honors Bosnia & Herzegovina Statehood Day and the storied history of a nation shaped by the resilience of its multicultural populace.
Following the restoration of Bosnia & Herzegovina in 1943, the nation was assigned its own coat of arms. In 1998, the unified national flag depicted waving in today’s Doodle artwork was officially adopted. This flag features a blue band emblazoned with a yellow triangle, seven full stars, and two half stars.
The triangle mirrors the shape of the Eastern European country and symbolizes the multiethnic structure of all its citizens. Each color symbolizes Bosnia’s historical neutrality while the blue background illustrates the nation’s solidarity with Europe, referencing the European Union’s flag.
Happy Statehood Day, Bosnia & Herzegovina!
