Festival of harvesting special meadow Flowers of Our Lady used for the pilgrimage.

Festival of harvesting special meadow Flowers of Our Lady used for the pilgrimage.

Festival arises from the customs in the past when young girls gathered special meadow flowers called Our Lady’s Flowers. On the eve of the holiday of Our Lady of Zečevo they would knit flower wreaths to decorate main church door and Our Lady´s rock (Roman capital from the 1st century). After mass celebrations during procession believers take blessed flowers believed to be miraculous. Mystic customs attract tourists who participate in gathering flowers and in processions.
