We wish our Serbian members and colleagues a great National Day

From 15 February the holiday will be celebrated for two days. It commemorates the first Serbian uprising lead by Djordje Petrovic from 1804 to 1813 against the Ottoman Empire, which would lead to Ottoman recognition of Serbia as a nation in 1817. The uprising was the first stage of the Serbian Revolution, which would see the consolidation of power and increasing autonomy within Serbia, until once again on 15 February Milos Obrenovic would sign the first modern Serbian constitution in 1835.
