The Use, Interpretation and Symbolization of the National

Abstract

The author seeks to answer questions concerning the process by which a national identity was built in Croatia from 1990 onwards. She analyses visual messages of different kinds, stating that these phenomena can not be measured by numerical interpretation of the data. Therefore, she selects the most prominent signs and symbols by which an image of the new Croatia was constructed, and the war was continuously interpreted and follows their flow through different levels of culture giving a description or interpretation of the context.
