Croatian President photographed holding Nazi puppet-state flag

by InSerbia with agencies

A photograph of Croatian President Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic holding Independent State of Croatia (NDH) flag appeared on social networks, reported Croatian portal “Indeks”.

The Independent State of Croatia (NDH) was a World War II puppet state of Germany and Italy, which was established in parts of Axis-occupied Yugoslavia. The NDH was founded on 10 April 1941, after the invasion of Yugoslavia by the Axis powers.

The NDH consisted of modern-day Croatia and most of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as some parts of modern-day Serbia and Slovenia. The regime targeted Serbs, Jews, Roma people and anti-fascist or dissident Croatians and Muslims, as part of a large-scale genocide campaign in places such as the Jasenovac concentration camp.

Professor from Toronto Tihomir Janjicek published, with her permission, a photograph with Croatian President behind a Croatian flag as it was during the Nazi Independent State of Croatia in the World War Two.

As stated, Janjicek wrote that he placed the flag with personal permission of Croatian President.

“The President saw the flag and as you can see on the photograph, she personally held the flag. I congratulate the President on her sincere Croatianism. This flag is my personal copy and it was purchased in Zagreb at the time when it was the official Croatian flag. This flag gathers all Croats, in Croatia, BiH, Serbia, Montenegro and around the world, wherever they are,” wrote Janjicek.

Croatian portal wrote earlier that the coat of arms that permanently became Ustasha emblem was removed after the fascists were defeated in World War II, and that during Yugoslavia, Croatia used different coat of arms, which after independence was preserved as the symbol of the Republic of Croatia.

    The Toronto connection is not fortuitous: Canada has been reconstructing the Nazi puppet states in Croatia, the Baltic lands and Ukraine ever since the war ended. Taking the glowing ashes of fascism and lovingly blowing them back to life until they could be returned to Europe where they would form a bulwark for imperialism.

    • And we, Eastern Orthodox Slavic people, know what Canada is doing. And we tend to remember things well. Are you still waiting for us to come after 70 plus years? Well, keep doing this sort of stuff and we might really come. And hell, you will not like one bit of it – it is a PROMISE 🙂
