Bac u kry is a Slogan which was used during Kosovo's[a] independence from Serbia in February 2008. It means Uncle, It is done![1]

The slogan was also used on T-shirts, pens and posters. The creators of this phrase say that this symbolizes the independence which many Ethnic Albanians dreamt for since the end of the Kosovo War in 1999.[1]

The slogan often accompanies the face of Adem Jashari, an Ethnic Albanian Commander during the Kosovo War who was killed in action.[1]

Uses[edit]

The slogan Bac u kry was used by many. There are billboards which use this phrase. In addition, in downtown Borroramizi (Pallati i Rinisë) there is a flag with exactly the same expression.

Notes and references[edit]

Notes:

a.   ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has received formal recognition as an independent state from 113 out of 193 United Nations member states.
