MINSK, 9 May (BelTA) – The state symbols of Belarus reflect a national idea – the desire of Belarusians for an independent and peaceful life. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement during a solemn ceremony held in the State Flag Square on 9 May to honor the state symbols, BelTA has learned.
This year's Victory Day happened to be on the second Sunday of May and therefore coincided with another important holiday – Day of the State Emblem and the State Flag. According to Aleksandr Lukashenko, the coincidence of the most important holidays in the history of Belarusian statehood in the Year of People's Unity is a sign of immutability of the national traditions and spiritual values.
Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “We know that our emblem, flag, anthem, and the Great Victory are inextricably interlinked symbols of the greatness and independence of the Belarusian nation. They embody fateful accomplishments of Belarusians, spiritual and moral traits of the nation, peculiarities of our culture and world view.”
