The festivities of St. Blaise opened today with the traditional release of doves in front of St. Blaise Church and the raising the saint's flag on the Orlando Column. With the waving of banners, traditional songs and the applause from the gathered crowds the festivities of the patron saint of Dubrovnik have begun.

At the opening numerous telegrams from Dubrovnik expats from all over the world and seafarers from the city were read out to the massed crowds.

 On the eve of the most important day in Dubrovnik’s calendar, the Day of Saint Blaise on the 3rd of February, the city is decorated and prepared to celebrate their patron saint.
