Day of the Flag of Lithuania

01/01/2013

Day of the Flag of Lithuania

Cathedral Square

To commemorate the event of 1 January 1919 when a group of 10 volunteers performed an act full of a symbolic meaning for the first time - raised the free-color flag of Lithuania on Gediminas Hill. A huge emotional effect on the residents of Lithuania recalling 7 October 1988 when Lithuanian tree-color flag was returned to the place it belonged to, when in 2004 the Lithuanian three-color flag waved alongside 25 flags of NATO and when our flag was hoisted together with other flags of the European Union on 1 May.
