Dear colleagues! Today we honor one of the symbols of the Ukrainian State - the Blue and Yellow Flag. On this day in 1991, for the first time in a decade of disdain and prohibitions, people's deputies solemnly introduced the national flag to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
From ancient times, the combination of purity and grandeur of the bottomless blue sky with the golden glow of the wealth of Ukrainian land was sacred to our people. At the times of Kyivan Rus, the period of glorious Cossacks, and the liberation struggle in the 20th century, — blue and yellow colors fluttered on the edges of spears and bayonets. And today, our army raises the national flag in battles for the integrity and sovereignty of the native country.
Therefore, we carry our national flag with dignity as a symbol of unity, independence and indomitable spirit. Let's crown our victories and achievements with a blue-yellow flag. We are creating a new history of state symbols that future generations will be proud of.
Happy Day of the National Flag of Ukraine!
