Let’s celebrate Estonian Flag Day around the world

Estonian Flag Day

The working group of the Cultural Diversity Year invites you to celebrate the 140th anniversary of the Estonian flag. Let us raise our flags and dress in blue, black and white. In this way, we will show how the Estonian flag unites everyone who cares about Estonia.

We will celebrate the anniversary of the Estonian flag both in Estonia and further afield on June 4. The Estonian flag symbolises the values that we share as Estonians. Among these, of course, is cultural richness – the diversity of Estonian communities and national cultures. That is why, on this special day, we will hoist the Estonian flag together across the world.

On June 4, there are two ways to make the tricolour more visible. First, we can display the black, blue and white flag at home, in the office, and everywhere else. Secondly, we can dress in the colours of the flag or add some blue, black and white details to our outfit.

To ensure that all the tricolours hoisted in different ways form an Estonian flag that flies around the world, the working group of the Cultural Diversity Year is waiting for pictures or videos of your flags. Post your images on Facebook using the hashtags #meielipp and #kultuuririkkus.

Pictures and videos are welcome no later than June 4, but they can also be posted throughout the month of June. All posted pictures and videos will be compiled by the panel of the Cultural Diversity Year into a universal Estonian flag.

The Cultural Diversity Year  is a theme year organized by the Ministry of Culture and the Integration Foundation to highlight the diversity of Estonian communities and the cultures of the people living in Estonia.
