Bosnia Sign

This carved wooden Bosnia Sign marks New Zealand’s peace keeping efforts in the former Yugoslavia during the mid-1990s. Kiwi Company I was based at Santici Camp near the town of Vitez, approximately 20 kilometres north-west of Sarajevo. The contingent was given responsibility for a section of the Lasva Valley, and its principal task was to monitor compliance with the agreements reached between the Bosnian Croat and Bosnian Government authorities, and to improve the freedom of movement and general quality of life of people in its area of responsibility.
