Donation to the International Wall of Friendship

 croatia plaque

The Croatian stone was donated by Ante Tosic, President of the Australian Croatian Club on 18th of January 1985. The stone is polished grandee dark grey granite with a metal replica of the red and white check national emblem of Croatia centrally located, below which is a gold filled inscription in Croatian, and under this, a repeat in English. The stone was taken from the same quarry on the Dalmatia coast (in the former Yugoslavia) that supplied the granite for the United Nations building in New York.
