Zittau (dpa/sn) - The most beautiful harvest crown and the most beautiful harvest wreath in Saxony in 2022 come from Lusatia and Vogtland. According to the Saxon rural women's association, the Sorbian village association Domizna from Crostwitz (Bautzen district) and the local rural women's association Irfergrün (Vogtland district) were chosen as the winners of the competition on Saturday in Zittau. "Fortunately there are people for whom it is a matter of the heart to keep this beautiful tradition alive - local associations, church and village communities and also the rural women's groups," said President Monika Michael.
According to Michael, the competition is a high point in association life and the highlight of the state harvest festival. "And the original intention of saving these traditions for our modern age has also been fulfilled." It is awarded annually by the regional development ministry.
