Kosovo is Serbia” (Serbian: Косово је Србија, romanized: Kosovo je Srbija) is a slogan that has been used in Serbia since at least 2004,[1][2] popularised as a reaction to Kosovo‘s[a]declaration of independence from Serbia on 17 February 2008.[3] The slogan has been used by a series of protests, and by the Serbian Government.[4] The slogan has appeared on T-shirts and in graffiti and was placed on the websites of Kosovar institutions by hackers in 2009. The slogan is used by Serbs across the world.[5] The slogan first campaigned officially by the Serbian government protesting Western powers.[6]
