Day of the National Flag of Ukraine

Katowice, Poland – August 23, 2022

Ukrainian flag is blue-yellow. At least there is a couple of ideas why it’s blue and yellow; one says this is because of the role of Ukraine as Europe’s breadbasket, where blue denotes ski over the land and yellow stands for wheat fields. Another idea is that they are the colours being used even before Christianity which meant fire and water – important elements of life.

The blue and yellow flags – in various combinations – were used by various Cossack groups since 15th century; blue and yellow was a flag used during the struggle for independence in 1917 and a flag of Ukrainian People’s Republic which emerged as a result in 1917 and existed till 1920.

Therefore, blue and yellow flag has its long history, and was used on the territory of Ukraine and even some adjacent territories, including use of such flag in Czar Russia, where many Ukrainians were residing on the territories from Central Russia to the Far East.

During the Soviet era the bicolour – blue and yellow – flag was outlawed but reappeared due to the efforts of Ukrainian patriots in Ukrainian parliament on 23 August 1991 – one day before that same parliament adopted Act of Declaration of Independence of Ukraine. Later by president’s decree that day, when the flag reappeared in the parliament, was recognized as Day of the National Flag of Ukraine.

Nowadays the national flag of Ukraine symbolizes the will of Ukrainians to fight for their freedom and right to make their own choices and live the life they want to live; the colours of the flag help saving hope for victory, happy, calm and prosperous future.

We congratulate all Ukrainians with Day of the National Flag of Ukraine and wish Ukraine the soonest victory over the evil they happened to encounter with, please be strong and brave and the evil will definitely fail.

Glory to Ukraine!

Glory to Heroes!

Long live free and prosperous Ukraine!

Magura – the daughter of war and Ukrainian Wonder Woman – is an illustrator from Ukraine.

Here we may, quite shortly, put some personal details about an artist, for example social and professional background, what artist was doing before the war and how the war has changed her life.

In more details what was happening with the artist since the war was unleashed – personal reflections, activities, events in personal life – for example marriage.

Artist’s view of how the war shall end and how Ukraine shall overcome all the difficulties.

Actually speaking, it would be better to make a short interview with the artist and compose this sort of message as a result, the question is if it’s is possible and will conduct such interview.

On the other hand, it’s also probable that such sort of profile/message may be already available, I would guess that it could be got prepared for exhibitions of the artist, at least there is one mentioning about the exhibition at Facebook.
