The ceremony, which was organized by the Academia Cravatica, attracted a large audience of citizens.

The cravat regiment consists of 17 members including four cavalrymen who lined up in Zagreb’s main square in uniforms worn by Croatian soldiers during the Thirty Years’ War[.

Mihovil Bogoslav Matković, a representative of Academie Cravaticae, an institution that promotes the cravat and its history and heritage, underscored that Cravat Day is marked with cravats being tied around 40 monuments in Zagreb as well as promotional activities in other cities around the country.

“The cravat as part of Croatia’s heritage is especially effective and can promote communication between Croatia and the world,” said Matković and recalled that it was at the Academia’s initiative in fact that the Croatian Sabor declared 18 October as Cravat Day.

The event was further highlighted with Cravat ambassadors, scientist Igor Rudan and writer Miro Gavran attending.

“One thing that Croatia truly has is the cravat, which is part of our heritage, however many people around the world know very little about that. This is a rare opportunity to brand our state in the world with something beautiful, useful, and recognizable,” said the researcher.
