Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, 1995 proposal

Bosnia and Herzegovina is one of the few countries that doesn’t have some kind of national day, since the two entities can’t agree on which day to celebrate. The Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina celebrates Statehood Day on November 25.

The leading flag proposals for the Federation involved merging Croat and Bosniak national symbols rather than coming up with any kind of neutral design. This one feels like a particularly artful blend. I like how the Bosniak fleur-de-lis is on top of the shield, but the Croatian red is the top stripe of the flag. A nice compromise.

This proposal was beaten out by a flag where the national symbols were a bit more segmented. In the end though it was kind of a moot point since the courts declared that flag unconstitutional in 2007, for reasons that would have seen this one banned too. Since then the entity has been flagless.

Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina during the Bosnian War
The Bosnian War or the War in Bosnia and Herzegovina was an international armed conflict that took place in Bosnia and Herzegovina between 1 March 1992 and 14 December 1995. The war involved several factions. The main belligerents were the forces of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina and those of the self-proclaimed Bosnian Serb and Bosnian Croat entities within Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republika Srpska and Herzeg-Bosnia, who were led and supplied by Serbia and Croatia respectively.

Cecil has both work and personal tattoos. His work tattoos are usually very old designs, some having been found on mummies that are thousands of years old, or runes. His personal tattoos are a weird mixture of eyes, tentacles, and symbols that have a sentimental meaning for him (i.e an Erlenmeyer flask for Carlos, a paw print for Khoshekh, and a cartoon spider wolf for Janice).

“Yeah, I know. We should…”  

A grumble came from under a blue patterned comforter, and the hushed voices stopped. But only for a moment.

A little girl gives water to riot policemen in Sarajevo in this June 10th 2013 photo.  An old law lapsed in February, leaving all babies born in the country since then without personal documents. The government offered to issue temporary ID numbers until a new law is passed, but the protesters are demanding a final law be approved immediately.

Old Woman Josie is a very powerful, very important prophet. This is the reason why she attracts so many angels, as they want to ensure her safety. Originally they tried to move her to a safer location, which Josie did Not Want. She put up such a big fight that now they are a little afraid of her, so they do whatever she wants (within reason).
