Within the framework of the initiative “Way of Latvian Flag”, the national flag of Latvia and a special book of messages will travel to the Latvian people around the world before the Centenary of the State of Latvia. Latvians in every country on the route will be invited to write a wish to Latvia on the occasion of its centenary. The way of the flag will be affectionate, jointly created gift to Latvia and, at the same time, a story to be handed over to future generations.
„Way of Latvian Flag” is a joint initiative of the young Latvians living in Latvia and abroad. The idea was born during the World Youth Camp „2X2” in Ratnieki in 2015, when the young people came together to discuss and make plans, how to celebrate the Latvia’s Centenary and what should be a common and symbolic gift to Latvia on its birthday.
The flag will travel first to Australia at the end of 2016 from the Riga Castle, where Latvian Culture Days and the World Latvian Economics and Innovations Forum will be held in Melbourne. It is planned that the journey of the flag will end at the end of 2018 in Nova Odessa, Brazil, South America, and then it will return to Latvia.
