ZAGREB, Aug 7 (Hina) – The Zagreb Festival of Artistic Flags, a unique event displaying small flags, will be held in downtown Zagreb from August 10 to 20 with 350 artistic flags from about 20 countries.

Participating in the event will be artists from Croatia as well as from Argentina, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Finland, India, Italy, Canada, Russia, USA, Slovenia, Serbia and Uruguay.
The festival will be held with the support of the City of Zagreb Tourist Board and Zagreb City authorities.
