‘We mark the Day of our blue and yellow flag on the eve of the 25th anniversary of Ukraine’s independence. These are the tough times as Ukrainians faced serious challenges. The flag is one of the state and statehood’s symbols. The Ukrainian flag is both a symbol and a talisman, the one that people carry with them while defending the independence of our country’, Kyiv mayor Vitaliy Klitshcko said as quoted by his press service.

‘On the Flag Day, I always remember this one from my personal experience: wherever I fought, defending Ukraine’s honor in sport, I always carried the blue and yellow banner that gave me strength and determination and helped me gain victories. And I do believe we’ll do everything that victories follow the blue and yellow flag – and Ukraine itself’, the mayor said.
