And in the performance we were inspired by the mill spoons from Rastok. And all this with the recognizable Karlovac Star in the center, which in turn symbolizes the geographical position and belonging to the destination”Said Vladimir Resner, author of the new visual identity of Karlovac County, which symbolizes joy, diversity and playfulness.

Božo Skoko from the Millennium Promotion and adds: “To define the basic elements of brand identity, it is important to explore the opinion of the community as the bearer of identity in the destination area.
