Sarajevo City Hall this evening illuminated in the colors of the Austrian flag

SARAJEVO, October 26 (FENA) – The City Hall building in Sarajevo was tonight illuminated in the colors of the Austrian flag on the occasion of the National Holiday of that country, October 26.

This illumination of the building will last until 10 pm, according to the official announcement from the Austrian Embassy in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The Austrian Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina Ulrike Hartmann, on the occasion of the Austrian National Holiday, October 26, pointed out this evening that this is a solemn day for all Austrians, which is celebrated together with partners and friends abroad.

In a video message on this occasion to Austrians and all friends of their country, the ambassador, speaking in Bosnian, reminded that the pandemic still imposes restrictions, which is why her address this year is a virtual one, noting that Covid-19 does not only mean physical distance among people and health risk but also major changes and predominantly negative consequences in both private and business life.

In such a challenging situation at the international level, Austria, according to her further allegations, does not think only of itself, but shows solidarity “primarily with our friends in the Western Balkans, and especially with Bosnia and Herzegovina.”

On the occasion of the Austrian national holiday, tonight from 7 to 10 pm, the Sarajevo City Hall will be illuminated in the colors of the flag of that country, while in Sarajevo, Banja Luka and Mostar, scenes from Austria will be shown on LED screens for the next seven days.

All the activities on the occasion of this national holiday are realized by the Austrian Embassy in Sarajevo.
