President Mesić with T-shirt JADRAN JE NAŠ!
For Mladina, Borut Mekina and myself we did an interview with president of Croatia Stjepan Mesić. On the end of the interview Mekina gave him a Mladina’s T-shirt with slogan “Jadran je naš!” (Adriatic sea is ours!). This T-shirt is Mladina‘s comment to a Slovenian / Croatia border dispute considering borderline on the sea, with paraphrasing famous Slovenian nationalistic slogan after second world war Trst je naš! that means: Trieste is ours!
Anyhow after president saw the T-shirt Mekina started to explain the T-shirt as a comment to a ridicules political dispute about the sea border, but president interrupted him and said: Of course I agree; Adriatic is ours, Slovenian and also Croatian!
If you want the T-shirt, you can get it HERE and it was commented also by Croatian newspaper Jutranji list. š
