Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri was joined by members of the local Bosnian community on Monday for the raising of the Bosnian flag at City Hall.

Palmieri says Bosnian immigrants have made a positive impact on Utica.

Palmieri also issued a proclamation declaring March 25th as Bosnian-American Day in Utica.

There are about 4,500 Bosnians living in the Utica area.
