Presentation of SDB

The Salesians of Don Bosco (aka the Salesian Society), founded by St. John Bosco (Giovanni Bosco, 1815-1888) in Turin on 26 January 1854 as the Society of St. Francis of Sales, was canonically approved by Pope Pius IX in 1873. The third largest missionary organization in the world, the Salesian Society has now more than 20,000 members. The Society is divided into nine geographical Provinces and 94 Vice-Provinces.

The Salesians started their activity in Slovenia in 1901, as Don Boskovi Salezijanci / Slovenskem Don Boskovi (SDB). Founded in 1922 at Ljubljana, the St. Cyril and Method Vice-Province of the Salesian Society belongs to the North Europe Province. The Vice- Province rules 10 communities in Slovenia, one in Austria, one in Italy, one in Serbia and one in Montenegro.

Flag of SDB

The SDB website shows the flag of the Salesians of Don Bosco in Slovenia as a vertical flag (3:1), yellow with, in the middle, the central part of the emblem of the Salesian Society on a white field weparated form the yellow background by two wavy blue stripes, and the writing "DON BOSKO" in red letters near the bottom of the flag.

The central part of the emblem of the Salesian Society is, according to Wikipedia, "an arrow pointing upwards resting on three perpendicular legs on top of which are three closed circles making a stylised image of three people: the first of these in the midde and taller than the others is the point of the arrow, and the other two beside it appear as it were to be embraced by the central figure. The three stylised figures with the arrow pointing upwards can also be viewed as a simple dwelling with a sloping roof (the arms) and with pillars holding it up (the bodies of the three people. The three stylized figures represent St. John Bosco reaching out to the young, and his call for Salesians to continue his work; [...] the house represents Bosco's Oratories of Reason, Reasoning, and Kindness (three columns of house)."
