"Everyone knows what colors symbolize freedom, invincibility and dignity. These are blue and yellow. The colors of the Ukrainian flag. The colors of the Ukrainian soul," the president said.
On the occasion of the holiday, he asked citizens to unfurl the flag of Ukraine from their window, or to tie a blue and yellow ribbon on their hand.
“Just to yourself, in your heart, ask God for prosperity for our country. Happy National Flag Day!” Zelensky said.
