Remembering Srebrenica bannerShropshire Council joins with other organisations to remember the events of twenty-eight years ago in Bosnia, where over 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were murdered because of their faith.

The symbol of the national Remembering Srebrenica organisation is the Srebrenica Flower: this is a symbol of remembrance of the Srebrenica Genocide. Its eleven petals represent the day the genocide began, while their white colour represents the innocence of its victims. The flower’s green centre represents hope for justice and recognition of the genocide.
