House in Dalmatia Flying German Flag Becomes Hit on Facebook…

A picture of a house in Dalmatia, surrounded by mountains and the threatening grey skies of winter becomes a hit on Facebook, thanks to the trusty old German flag.

If you’re anything like me, then you’re a (not so secret) lover of memes. Croatian memes can get quite dark, given the often murky waters that a lot of the country’s political events are staged in, but once you reach a certain level of desensitisation, you can crack a grin at most of them.

Not all of them are politically based, which is a first indeed for a country that asks you what ties you have to any political party when merely opening a current account, and one page in particular is a hit across the country.

The extremely popular Facebook page Dnevna doza prosjecnog Dalmatinca (A daily dose of the average Dalmatian) is a usually light hearted take on the funny and often odd activities undertaken in Dalmatia. From innovative ways to dry out the famous prosciutto from Drnis to giant inflatable flamingos precariously tied to cars travelling down motorways – this Facebook page covers it all.

Recently, a photo of a house in Dalmatia appeared on the page. This house in Dalmatia was nothing outstanding, quite the opposite in fact. But the sight of the Croatian flag flying alongside the German flag drew in some interesting and funny comments from social media users.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 6th of February, 2020, the house in Dalmatia, more specifically a photo from Kastela, speaks volumes with its flying of the German flag, a flag which many Croats worship.

Germany has been a top destination for Croatian citizens looking to earn as much as they can for their retirement for many years now, and that trend has been exacerbated ever since Croatia joined the European Union back in July 2013, seeing Germany’s restrictions on its labour market drop for Croatian citizens and the borders open.

This photo of a house in Dalmatia, more precisely in Kastela, has drawn numerous humorous comments from Facebook users that the person who built the house must have made the money for it in Germany.

“You can see where the money for the roof was raised”, “If the origin is known, why wouldn’t our politicians put their party’s flag on it”, “So people know where the euros are from” are just a few of the tongue-in-cheek comments written under the amusing photo.
