Greetings on Day of State Emblem and State Flag of Belarus

    Dear compatriots,

    I extend my best wishes on the Day of the State Emblem of the Republic of Belarus and the State Flag of the Republic of Belarus.

    Patriotism of every person relies on reverent, respectful attitude to the flag, emblem and anthem of the country. No state and citizens can exist without these symbols.

    Our people have been striving for independence for centuries. We protected ourselves and the native land from physical and moral enslavement. This path is reflected in the main symbols of the Republic of Belarus which embody crucial values and ideals of Belarusians, namely love for the Fatherland, prioritizing of freedom and justice, creative labor in the native land, the desire to live in peace and accord in our common Belarusian home.

    Today the state flag, emblem and anthem unite us in a big family filling hearts with the pride for being part of the nation with rich past, glorious present and wonderful future.

    Let this holiday make us closer, enhance the noble feeling of responsibility of each and every citizen for the country and encourage us to work hard for the benefit of the Homeland.

    Dear friends, I wish you strong health, every success, happiness, joy and wellbeing.

    Aleksandr Lukashenko
