In this essay I first examine the symbolisms of the Romanian Căluș tradition in its village setting, then I look at the changes that took place in these symbolisms during its transformation from a village ritual to a national icon. Finally I investigate the position that the Căluș tradition holds today among Romanians within Romania and in the diaspora.
