Republic of Banat

The Republic of Banat (Romanian: "Republica Bănățeană", German: "Bundesrepublik Banat", Serbian: "Bantska Republika/ Банатска република", Hungarian: "Banati Koztarsasag", Italian "Republica Banato", French "Republique de Banato" ) is a federal republic. The country is situated in the central Europe, where it is bordered with Hungary to the North, Transylvania to the East, Romania to the South-East, Serbja and Bulgaria to the South and Croatia to the West.

Banat has a long history of neutrality from the ancient Middle Ages.

1. Origins:

In the 9th century, at the end of Roman Empire, the Romans maintained on the west side the little province Dacia. After Roman Emperor Traian conquered Dacia in 105-106, the province of Dacia contained all the territory between the actual river Prut, Danube, Tisza and the all Carpathian Mountains. During that time, because the barbarians conquered a big part of Dacia, the Roman province was reduced to the land between the Carpathian Mountains and the River Tisza, Danube and Sava.

The year 896 represents the end of Roman administration of Dacia. During the winter between 896 and 897 Huns and Slavs tried to conquer the ancient Roman region of Dacia, but it was impossible. The people from Roman municipalities of Sarmizegetusa Regia, Tibiscum, Drobetense, Zambara, Partiscum and many other important municipalities take the decision to create the Kingdom of Banat, in the spring of 897. This spring is called "Banatus Ver" (the spring of Banat). At the beginning, the kingdom contains only the territory between the river Strei at east, the river Maros at north, the river Tisza at west and the Danube at South. The first king of Banat was "Glad the First". The term of Banat is coming from the name of the last Roman governor of Dacia province "Banus". At that time in Banat was a mixture of population:

  • Romanians or Daco-Romans.
  • Magyar.
  • Bulgarians.
  • Gothi (German people).

Over the time Banat was extended from the little province to the actual territory with the natural borders of :

  • the River Danube at East.
  • the River Sava, Moravia and Timok at South.
  • the River Danube and the Carpathians Mountains at South-East.
  • the small rivers of Jiu, Strei and the Carpathians Mountains at East.
  • the River Fekete-Koros (White Koros) at North.

The flag of Banat is adopted in the year 1345. The cross is the symbol of Christianity and also is a symbol of the four main rivers of Banat: Danube, Sava, Tisza and Maros. The purple is the symbol of the Roman flame in the eastern part of Europe and all the wars to defense with dignity the Latinity and the peace.

2. Banat - a multicultural Federal Republik

Banat has three major populations: Romanian (25%), German (20%), Serbs and Croats (17%) and Magyar (16%). Other important populations are: Italians (8%), French (5%), Czech and Slovaks (4%), Bulgarians (3%), Ukrainians (0.5%) and Polish (0.5%). From the ethical point of view, Banat is a "Little Europe" with Latin, Slavic and German population. All the people from Banat are Christians (Orthodox or Catholics), and from the National Law of Young Glad (Glad V or "Glad Tânărul") there is not allowed Jews or Muslims to immigrate into Banat.
