Kula Belgrade illuminated in honor of Serbian greats men from the First World War
On the occasion of November 11, Armistice Day, Kula Belgrade was lit up in the colors of the Serbian tricolor. After that, the images of the great Serbian military leaders – Zivojin Misic, Radomir Putnik, Petar Bojovic, Stepa Stepanovic – were then displayed on the media facade of the highest building in Serbia. Finally, the sky above Belgrade was proudly illuminated by Natalija’s ramonda, the official emblem of this holiday and a symbol of the Serbian resurrection after great suffering in the First World War.
Paying tribute to Serbian heroes in a completely innovative way, Kula Belgrade not only preserves the memory of the great men whom we owe freedom, but also justifies the epithet of the new symbol of our capital.
Armistice Day is commemorated as the remeberance of November 11, 1918, when the German capitulation was signed in the Compiegne forest, in the wagon of French Marchal Ferdinand Foch, ending the armed conflicts in the First World War. Armistice Day has been celebrated as a national holiday in Serbia since 2012.
