With the lowering of the St. Blaise flag in front of the St. Blaise Church in the very centre of Dubrovnik the 1045th Festival of St. Blaise ended today.

At the end of the ceremony the Commissioner of the Government of the City of Dubrovnik, Nada Medovic, posed on the steps on the church along with the Dubrovnik Musketeers and members of the Brotherhood of St. Blaise.

The Day of St. Blaise, on the 3rd of February, the procession and the whole Festival of St. Blaise is listed under protection of UNESCO since 2009. For over a thousand years Dubrovnik has celebrated the day of its patron saint, in fact the day has been marked in some form since at least 1190.
