Celebrating 130 Years of the Estonian Flag

The blue, black and white flag adopted as the national flag of Estonia celebrates its 130th birthday today. Originally created by the Estonian Students Society in Otepää on the 4th June 1884, it is now the pride of the Estonian nation!

This morning at 7am a special ceremony took place at the Governor's Gardens where the flag was hoisted on Pikk Hermann Tower. As a special treat, for today only, visitors can go inside and explore the tower until 3pm.

Elagu sini-must-valge Eesti lipp, elagu Eesti!
