The Ukrainian national and state flag came to the heart of our nation by thorny ways of being. During the historical achievements, it became a symbol of the struggle for national and social rights. It embodies the age-old desire for peace, labor, beauty and richness of our native land.

Over the past two years, the Flag of Ukraine has become over the official symbol, because it has acquired a new importance, and, above all, has become a symbol of free, invincible man. Its yellow-blue colors throughout the historical development symbolized the struggle for freedom, and now, more than ever, it is a pride for every Ukrainian!
