unknown author

1942. 8. 20.


In 1941, when the Hungarians re-occupied the Prekmurje, in many places the Hungarian flag was raised, symbolizing the annexation of the Prekmurje to Hungary. The photo was taken at the ceremony on August 20, 1942, at the solemn consecration of the Hungarian flag. The celebration was on August 20, St. Stephen's Day, which is one of the largest Hungarian national holidays. August 20 is both a public and ecclesiastical holiday in Hungary, the country of the Crown of Saint Stephen. The first Hungarian king, Saint Stephen, was canonized on August 20, 1083.
