The graffiti “Osijek – nepokoreni grad” (“Osijek – the unconquered city”) appeared on the intersection of Divaltova and Trpimirova Street in 1991 when Croatian soldiers were defending themselves and the city against armed attacks. The graffiti was declared a cultural asset, and its author is Predrag Sušac. It is a symbol of strength, courage, defiance and heroism of Croatian defenders thanks to whom Osijek can be referred to as the “unconquered city”. The fact that this is the only graffiti which was not in any way damaged speaks of its importance and respect for the Croatian defenders. Nevertheless, it is refurbished every year. In memory, honor and gratitude to fallen Croatian soldiers, candles are lit every year in front of the graffiti.
