At another place of significance where Our Lady has appeared, a blue cross was erected and this site is now called the "Blue Cross". Here Our Lady appeared to Ivan while he was hiding from the police.
In earlier times, the devotees would congregate at an area just above the road to Apparition Hill, in order to escape being noticed by the Communists. This is the Blue Cross Area, where these days pilgrims congregate for meditation and prayer.
Today, Our Lady still appears to Ivan here sometimes when he meets with his prayer group on Tuesdays and Fridays at this site. The cross is located at the foot of the Hill of Apparitions.
Blue Cross today is a place where Ivan's prayer group meets and where he receives his Friday evening apparition. For those wondering why the cross is blue, actually, there is no significance to the color. Blue paint was the only color available for the wooden cross, to protect it from weather and deterioration.
