UTICA, N.Y. -- Bosnian-Americans came to Hanna Park just outside of Utica City Hall for the first-ever Bosnian flag raising.

During the ceremony Mayor Rob Palmieri issued a proclamation that in every March there will be a Bosnian-American Day. Palmeiri says this was the largest group of people he's seen at a flag rising in a long time.

"They have blended into our city extremely well and we are very proud today just to be here and honor them with their first flag raising as not only as a part of the city, but part of a fiber as what we are as a city. A very diverse, and a very warm, giving community,” the mayor sad.

A representative from Congressman Brindisi’s office was also there passing along his congratulations.
