State Flag Square inauguration ceremony
A landmark event took place on the eve of Independence Day of Belarus, on 2 July. The State Flag Square was inaugurated in a solemn ceremony in the center of the capital city. The State Flag Square is located on Pobeditelei Avenue near the future Palace of Independence. The square features all the statehood symbols of Belarus: a huge flag hoisted on a 70 meter flagstaff, a bronze coat of arms (two meters in diameter), the text of the national anthem, a geographic map of Belarus, and steles with the coats of arms of the six regions and the city of Minsk. The ceremony was attended by about 6,000 people, and the entire Belarus was watching the inauguration ceremony live. The inauguration ceremony commenced from a youth theatrical show; the head of state joined the ceremony later. The President underlined that the State Flag Square together with the Palace of Independence is designed to become the center of the sovereign Belarusian state. A new patriotic tradition to take the oath of allegiance to the State Flag of the Republic of Belarus was started at the inauguration ceremony. Among the first to take the oath of allegiance were veteran of the Great Patriotic War, liberator of Minsk Major General Alexander Fen, two-time world champion and Olympic Games bronze medalist Darya Domracheva, designer of the world-famous BelAZ trucks, Hero of Belarus Pavel Mariyev, and the talented youth. After the state flag was solemnly raised on the flagstaff, the participants of the inauguration ceremony performed the national anthem of Belarus. Video
