Did you see that video, which popped up on Beyonce's Tumblr in April, that showed the singer, early in her pregnancy, posing near a tree that apparently inspired the name of her daughter, Blue Ivy? In the clip, Beyonce put her hands on the tree and said, "I think it’s blue ivy, which would be quite appropriate." Well, that tree was in Croatia and now the Southeastern European nation has decided to make Blue Ivy Carter an honorary citizen!

According to Vibe, the mayor of Hvar, the town where that tree stands, wrote a letter to Jay-Z and Beyonce: "The story of the origin of your girl’s name, Blue Ivy, has brought huge media attention and great tourism promotion to the town of Hvar. I have decided to grant your daughter the status of honorary citizen of the town."

The mayor also called Hvar "the sunniest town in Croatia" and invited Jay and Bey to visit again, which sounds like a pretty sweet vacation, made a little easier by the fact that their daughter will likely have a Croatian passport. 

So, should Jay-Z and Beyonce plan another family vacation to Hvar, Croatia?
