no London in our Derry

During my recent trip to Bosnia I couldn't help notice how the syrillic translations of towns had been removed in parts of the country.
The syrillic alphabet is used by the Serbs. Parts of Bosnia are still loyal to both Croatia and Serbia (both of these countries invaded Bosnia during the Balkan war).
It has parallels to Northern Ireland and how people attack the Irish Language signs or how they score out the London from Londonderry.
