The Light of Bethlehem, the light of peace and hope, has been shining since Tuesday in Croatian Parliament, where it was traditionally brought by Croatian scouts and placed in front of the Parliament building.

“I hope that the Light of Bethlehem will bring good, peace and joy to Croatian homes, as well as more understanding, mutual respect and tolerance in Croatian Parliament, more values that connect us and not divide us,” said Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandroković when receiving the Light of Bethlehem from scouts.


He pointed out that this light symbolizes the connection between nations, connects people, symbolizes peace and good, splendor in relation to darkness, and that unfortunately we live in a time that is really difficult due to the pandemic and the aftermath of the earthquake.


“I hope that while shining in Parliament in the coming days it will spread a spirit of kindness, understanding, faith and mutual connection,” said Jandroković, thanking the delegation of the Croatian Scout Association for spreading the splendor of the Bethlehem light.


The Chief of the Croatian Scout Association Boris Vujnović said that last year the message was cooperation, care for others and togetherness, just before the Petrinja earthquake when we all showed that togetherness, and this year it is for everyone to return to daily activities, to be happy and above all healthy.


Since 1992, for 20 years, Croatian Parliament has been the sponsor of the arrival of the Light of Bethlehem in Croatia.
