Happy National Flag Day of Ukraine!
August 23 – Day of the National Flag of Ukraine.
“Two colours are mine, two colours…”
Do you remember the words of a famous song? Today, the two colours that united the entire Ukrainian people are blue and yellow. The colours of peace, symbolise a clear cloudless sky and a field of ripe wheat. And the colours of our national flag, which we honour today.
Our flag is not only a state symbol. This is a marker of indomitable spirit, desire for freedom, and incredible faith in one’s people. That is why the Ukrainian flag arouses the great fury of our enemies, who, above all, fear the gene of freedom with which every Ukrainian is born. Because of this, during the years of Soviet occupation, for the blue-yellow flag people were sent to prison. And now they don’t imprison – today they kill for our banner.
Now, there is no such country where the Ukrainian flag would not be recognized by its blue and yellow colors. For this, we continue to pay an extremely high price – the lives of best sons and daughters of Ukraine. Let’s remember this!
Today, on the occasion of the holiday, state flags will be solemnly raised in all cities of Ukraine – this tradition was started in 2009. We believe that blue and yellow flags will soon fly over all Ukrainian cities and villages.
May each of us be pride for our flag and our country.
Do not let the faith in victory fade away!
Let’s keep in line and hold the flag more firmly in our hands!
We will stand! We will win!
