BiH’s Foreign Minister wrote to UEFA President for “War Flag” placed on UEFA European Winner Cup

On the occasion of the photos that appeared in the media, where it is clearly seen the flag of BiH on the UEFA European Cup winner, Igor Crnadak, Minister of Foreign Affairs of BiH, sent a letter to President UEFA Aleksander Ceferin.

Crnadak emphasized that he was obliged to react after having seen the photo of the trophy in the media, which was awarded to the winner of the UEFA European League, on which the war flag of BiH is seen.

“It is a flag that symbolizes only one nation and offends other peoples living in BiH. There are Serbs, Bosniaks, Croats and others who live in BiH, and the flag on the platform is a war flag used during the civil war in BiH from 1992 to 1995,” Crnadak said.

He points out that the Dayton Peace Agreement of November 1995 brought peace, and BiH received the official flag in 1998, and that all in BiH all the peoples who enjoy football, but the war flag of the trophy is offensive to many.

“I hope this was an unintentional mistake, so before the final match of UEFA Europa League, on May 29th, will correct the injustice and put the official flag of BiH in the base of the cup,” Crnadak concluded.
