PredLast year the Croatian Heraldic and Vexillological Asscoation (HGZD), together with the Croatian History Institute, the Croatian History Museum and the »Brethren of the Croatian Dragon« Society, held a ceremonial gala to start the initiative to establish the Day of Croatian Flag, as an official memorial day on 5 June, in memory of the date in 1848 when Ban Jelačić received his so called installation flag during the ceremony of his entering the office, as the first officially used Croatian tricolour.

While the procedure in the state bodies takes its time, on the 171 anniversary of the event we marked the proposed Croatian Flag Day with a lecture by Dr. Mario Jareb titled »From Ban Jelačića to our Days – Origins and History of the Croatian National and State Flag through the Century and a Half« organized by the Croatian Glagolitic Department and the History Department of the Croatian Matrix, on Wednesday, 5 June 2019 in the hall of the Croatian Matrix in Zagreb.
