Three colours of mourning in Bosnia and Herzegovina

SARAJEVO, BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - FEBRUARY 11: Bosnian Coppersmith Master Mirsad Brkanic who lost his mom 3 days ago talks about faith based 3 color obituary notice code which is a widespread tradition throughout the multi faith Balkans including his home country in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina on February 11, 2017. According to the 3 color obituary notice tradition which attracts attention of tourists, 'Muslims', 'Christians and Jews' and 'the ones who have no faith' print green, black and blue color obituary notices respectively to convey the information about their deceased family members. While Christians print cross and Jews use the Star of David too as the symbols of their religions Muslims have a star and crescent printed on their obituary notices. Brkanic who has 2 more shops in the vicinity says that according to the tradition the notices will stay hanging on the showcases of his shops as well as the on the walls of the entrance of his mosque for 7 days so that his fellow shopekeepers and neighbourhood residents can be informed about the deceased. He regards the whole faith based 3 color code as 'an important and a nice tradition' of Bosnians. (Footage by Denis Zuberi /Anadolu Agency / Getty Images)
