Initally the honour was awarded rarely, but starting in 1975 the count of awarded has increased rapidly (most honorees were 24 in 1986). Amongst the honoured were also two foreing nationals (astronauts Gagarin and Tereskova). One of the last honorees was Frantisek Cuba, director or JZD Agrokombinat Slusovice, in 1989.
STATUES / Story of Rapa Nui in Southern Hana
South Hana belongs to most fructiferous areas of central Europe; it is downy country habitated traditionally between Drahanska Vrchovina and Chriby, consisted partially by historical highway joining north of Europe with its south, located in axis of Morava, which is forced to communicate with surrounding countries unlike Bohemia, which is surrounded by mountains. You could say that virtually everything that is planted here, grows and gives fruits. Farming is being engaged here for six thousand years; however, during last sixty years without honor to traditions and mainly without any respect to the enviroment, to its character. Tons of soil are being flushed to Black Sea year by year, thanks to the manner of plowing, grown crops, field scoping. Which is leading to a paradox, that this fructiferous country belongs to most endangered enviroments in whole Czech Republic. Under layer consisted of high quality soil is hidden gravel-sand subsurface. It is only matter of time until gravel- sand desert is all there is left. It can be already seen in some areas of south Morava.
