On June 26, the Embassy of Ukraine in the State of Israel honors the Day of the Crimean Tatar flag.
Today, at the Embassy of Ukraine in the State of Israel next to the flag of Ukraine is waving the Crimean Tatar flag - the national flag of the indigenous people of the Crimean peninsula.
Since, the beginning of Russia's occupation of the Ukrainian Crimea and the intensification of repression against indigenous people, the Crimean Tatar flag has become a symbol of resistance.
On June 26, 1992, in Simferopol, the second Kurultay of the Crimean Tatar people began its activities. It was held 74 years after the first Kurultay, which took place in Bakhchysarai in 1918.
For the first time, the Crimean Tatar flag was adopted by the Kurultay of Crimean Tatars in 1917, right after the February Revolution, and readopted again on June 30, 1991, after Ukraine declared its independence.
