The Feast of St Blaise, Dubrovnik patron saint, has been a special day for the city of Dubrovnik ever since the year 972, when people began to celebrate it. 

The celebration begins on the 2nd of  February with the release of white doves, the symbols of freedom and peace, in front of St Blaise's church and with the raising of St Blaise's flag on Orlando's column

On St Blaise's Day (3 February) the relics of St Blaise are carried in Stradun and the streets of Dubrovnik in a huge procession of banners and people of faith from the Dubrovnik surroundings. 

In front of St Blaise's church the banners are unfurled in a special way. They bow paying respect to the saint who has watched over Dubrovnik for many centuries.
