  1. Bob Marley as a peace symbol in Europe
  2. The limits to its symbolic role in Europe

On 24th August 2008, a Bob Marley statue was unveiled in a south-east Serbian town, Banatski Sokolac . It was advertised as the unveiling of the first Bob Marley statue in Europe, and brought in thousands of people, mostly Serbian reggae fans. Although the statue is said to be appalling, this event highlights the potential of Marley's message through time and throughout the world. In any region of the world, devastated by ethnic struggles and massacres, the statement 'Bob Marley, fighter for freedom armed with a guitar' has indeed a special meaning. That is why, through this anecdotal example, we can't help but wonder about the Jamaican legend and his message, which is relevant to Europeans even today.
