REMEMBRANCE: With the holiday of Serbian unity and the flag on September 15, WE CELEBRATE THE HEROIC BREAKTHROUGH OF THE THESSALONIKI FRONT!
Tomorrow, Serbia and Republika Srpska will celebrate the joint holiday of the Day of Serbian Unity, Freedom and the National Flag for the second time, and the date of September 15 was chosen because on that day in 1918, the Thessaloniki Front was broken through.
Historian Cedomir Antic says that our country did not have a tradition of marking that great historical event.
– The First World War was a pride, but also a great sacrifice. Our people are aware of that. Unlike the wars that preceded it, that war has few gains for us, at least that is how it is believed, and the casualties were huge. It should be reminded that the Serbian people had proportionally the greatest casualties in the First World War, and that to this day they have lost all their achievements except the liberation and unification of today’s north of the country – Antic said for Kurir and added:
– I would like to emphasize that September 15 is a day when there is nothing to celebrate, but to have something to celebrate. I would like to point out that we can connect this holiday with our national and state flag, and that it is a good way to talk more about the breakthrough of the Thessaloniki Front.
