Kosovo je Srbija billboard by Serbian Government.

Kosovo je Srbija (Serbian: Косово је Србија) is a Slogan used during Kosovo's[a] disputed independence from Serbia in February 2008. It means "Kosovo is Serbia".

The slogan is used internationally in order to show that majority of the world will never recognize Kosovo independence, and for them, Kosovo is still part of Serbia, and it will be so.

In 2008, famous Serbian swimmer Milorad Čavić won the European championship in the 50 m butterfly, setting the new European record (23.11) in Eindhoven, Holland - a result briefly quashed when the European Swimming Federation (LEN) immediately disqualified the swimmer for wearing a T-shirt at the medals ceremony that read “Kosovo is Serbia”.[1] Shortly afterwards, however, the disqualification was lifted and recognition of his record reinstated.[1]

  • Solidarity – Kosovo is Serbia, media campaign against self proclaimed independence of Kosovo.
  • Kosovo is Serbia slogan can be seen on many places all over the world, in T-Shirts, graffiti and other disambiguations.

Notes and references

Notes:

a.   ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Serbia and the self-proclaimed Republic of Kosovo. The Assembly of Kosovo unilaterally declared its independence on 17 February 2008, a move that is recognised by 65 of the 192 UN member states and the Republic of China (Taiwan), but not by other UN member states. Serbia claims it as part of its own sovereign territory.
