Symbol of hate and hope

THE logo of the Srebrenica flower is the symbol of the genocide — the worst atrocity in Europe since the Second World War.

The flowers have 11 petals, reflecting Srebrenica Memorial Day on July 11, and are white and green, representing the innocence of those who were killed as well as hope for the future.

People wear the flower to honour and remember the victims and survivors of the genocide and to raise public awareness of the 1995 atrocities.

There are enameled ones and hand-crocheted ones made by the mothers of Srebrenica.
