About Day of the National Flag
This day is not considered a day off, but traditionally a whole complex of celebrations takes place in the country, including the annual official ceremony of raising the State Flag of Ukraine in regional and district centers.
On 23 August 1991, the day before independence from the USSR, a group of MPs brought a blue and yellow flag to the session hall of Ukraine’s parliament. That very flag is still being stored in the museum of the Verkhovna Rada as a relics.
