27 June 2017

On Monday, June 26,  auto rally dedicated to the day of the Crimean Tatar flag was held in Kiev. A few dozen of cars with Crimean Tatar and Ukrainian flags drove through the city. The auto rally finished on Khreshchatyk.

The flag was adopted by the Kurultay (national congress) of the Crimean Tatars in 1917 for the first time, after the February revolution in Russia. On June 30, 1991, this flag was re-adopted as a national flag by the newly convened Kurultay. The day of the Crimean Tatar flag is celebrated since 2010.
