Mayor Bandić thanked the participants for making the trip to the capital city of Croatians everywhere. “While there are emigrant and homeland Croatians – there will also be a Croatia,” said Bandić. Croatian World Games director Željko Batarilo said that the six-day event entirely lived up to the motto of the Games – One Nation – One Heart. The medals received by the participants will be a souvenir of a wonderful time spent in Croatia said Batarilo.
Milan Bošnjak noted that for the participants of the Games this is an achievement of contact with the land of their ancestors. “These days we have demonstrated the unity of the Croatian nation,” said Bošnjak.
