Montenegro_347

You can’t escape politics anywhere in the Balkans, and Montenegro is no different.  There’s a lot of politcal graffiti about (including a lot of pro and anti-Kosovan stuff), but I’ve chosen this piece in particular because it turns the traditional Serbian cross (a cross with a Cyrillic ‘C’ in each of the four corners, which stands for ‘only unity saves the Serbs’, a fairly strong political statement in Montenegro when you consider they only broke away from Serbia a few years ago and have also acknowledged Kosovo as an inependent state) into an butterfly.
