Greetings of Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov on the occasion of the Day of the National Flag of Ukraine
I sincerely congratulate you on the Day of the National Flag of Ukraine!
This day is a holiday for all generations of Ukrainians, who have for centuries fought for the independence of their Motherland. The flag of Ukraine became the embodiment of Independence and unbreakable spirit of the Ukrainian people.
The National Flag of Ukraine is known all over the world. Hundreds of flags fluttered at the Maidan uniting people and giving them courage. Our warriors preserve and protect the Flag under intense fire on the front; they carry it in battles and win! And it is the National Flag of Ukraine which bid the final farewell to the heroes. We bow our heads low before the fallen heroes...
Ukraine will always remember you!
I believe that Ukraine under the blue and yellow flag will be free, united and powerful European state!
