For centuries Croats have fought for independence against various avaricious invaders from many sides. This painting shows the final realization of a centuries long dream, with a few main figures a victorious Croatian people and the Croatian flag on the Knin fortress.
The world, though home to sin and evil, also has a lot of good to offer as shown in this painting. The beauty of living is shown through children's play, happy faces and figures who did a lot to benefit the world we live in. A few youthful scenes, altruism in the shape of mother Teresa, help given to the old, advancement of the world depicted in the academic dresses, all reveal optimism and belief in the victory of good over evil.
The composition of the painting itself forms a cross, the symbol of martyrdom. Croatian people have been through many sufferings and in the 1990s, led by Franjo Tudžman, they finally created their own independent country.
