The Tudjmanov trg decision aside, yesterday had an even more direct connection to the late president - it being the seventh anniversary of his death in 1999. With which a government delegation laying wreaths at his grave in Mirogoj cemetery, led by prime minister Ivo Sanader, broke into commemorative song.

Their 20-minute set list, according to Jutarnji list:
  • Djani Maršan's Bože, čuvaj Hrvatsku (God save Croatia)

  • Fala (Thank you)

  • Tereza Kesovija's Moja Dalmacija (My Dalmacija)

  • Miroslav Škoro/Zlatni dukati's Ne dirajte mi ravnicu (Hands off my plains)

  • Zovi, samo zovi (Call, just call)

  • Zdravo Djevo, kraljice Hrvata (Hail the Virgin, Queen of the Croats)

  • Lijepa naša domovina (Our beautiful homeland)

HDZ deputy Andrija Hebrang tells JL that they decided to sing 'several appropriate, patriotic songs' as background to the 45-minute ceremony, and that one or two of the numbers would have been particularly special to Tudjman - particularly Bože, čuvaj Hrvatsku, which he adopted as HDZ's anthem in the early 1990s.
