Our beautiful blue, black and white flag turns 135 today!

Today is Flag Day in Estonia. All Estonians have great affection for the tri-colour flag. On the 4th of  June 1884 the Estonian Student's Society adopted the blue black and white as colours of their fraternity and when Estonia declared its independence in 1918 it became the national flag of Estonia.

On this day the Estonian flag (Eesti lipp) will be displayed with pride in homes, schools, offices and in government buildings both home and abroad. Such a beautiful sight!
