On the photo Zlatko DaliŠ, coach of Croatian national soccer team, which won in a match with Iceland 2 - 1. Zlatko was born in the city of Livno in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and now lives in Croatia. Iceland was among the first countries which diplomatically recognized Croatia, on 19th December 1991. An interesting connection between Croatia and Iceland is the fact that Ivica KosteliŠ is married with Elin Arnarsdottir from Iceland. In Croatia's capital Zagreb there is a street named after Iceland (Islandska ulica), about 700 m of length.

HNS on Croatian Coat of Arms stands for Hrvatski Nogometni Savez - Croatian Football Union.
Nogomet = Football, is derived from noga - foot.




Iceland was among the first countries to diplomatically recognize Croatia, on 19th December 1991. However, the Croatian state continuity is very old:

Behind them are the flags of Croatia and Iceland. Second from the left is Ante KosteliŠ-Gips (gips = plaster, guess why this nickname!), father of Ivica and Janica KosteliŠ, famous skiers.
