There are several legends on how Rožanstvo village got its name : one says that name comes from the word božanstvo /divinity/, the other that it is derived from “roždestvo” /archaic form of the Serbian word meaning birth as well as the Christmas/; the third legend explains that the first newcomers to Rožanstvo village, Glumci Family said ” This is real God issue” when first time arrived to the village, while some responded ” What God Issues, we will suffer from work so you will see your true rebirth !”. The fourth legend on the name of Rožanstvo is connected with the local soil structure – rožnace.
