Bosnia and Herzegovina celebrated its 27th independence anniversary on Thursday.

Independence Day is considered a public day in the Serbian Republic of Srpska, one of the country’s two constitutional and legal institutions. The second is the Bosnian-majority Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, which celebrates the holiday.

Bosnia and Herzegovina became independent from the former Yugoslavia in a referendum on February 29 and March 1, 1992.

Most Serbs boycotted the referendum, while 64% voted for independence.

The results of the referendum were announced on March 6, 1992, and Bosnia and Herzegovina joined the United Nations on May 22, 1992.

Bosnia and Herzegovina became an independent state but faced a bloody war for independence and for hundreds of thousands of lives.

In a country where Bosniaks make up more than half of the Muslim population, traces of the 1992-1995 bloody war have yet to be completely eradicated. The complex political structure of the Dayton Peace Accords, which ended the war, does not allow the country to fully stabilize.

Bosnia and Herzegovina’s main goal is to become a member of the European Union.

The country is expected to receive a “candidate country” status this year. NATO membership, another strategic goal of the country, is an obstacle to the country’s opposition to Serbia.
