Dear Ukrainian citizens!
For Ukrainians the blue and yellow ensign means much more than just a national symbol. Our ancestors went under this flag to fight for a freedom and justice, for a decent life and honor, for a free and independent Ukraine. It is a flag of Grand Princes and Cossack forces, the Ukrainian revolution at the beginning of the ХХ century and clandestine forces, dissidents and democratic movements. The ensign that embodies the essence of the historical progress of Ukrainians as well as development of a State a modern political nation.
In these latter days the Ukrainian flag is an ensign of a young state that has chosen the European democratic path of development. It is a sign of a friendly and wise nation that unceasingly changes the country every day. This is the sacred place of courageous and heroic people who protect our national homeland in the East. The blue and yellow colors of the flag represent our state in the international arena. It is a symbol not only of the victories of past centuries, but also of the forerunner of the future, which is seen in the smiling faces of our children, who hold national flags at all solemn occasions.
I believe that soon the blue and yellow flag will be associated all over the world with a successful and prosperous country and with citizens who have not only achieved the freedom but also realized their own potential and built the new country!
Glory to Ukraine!
Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr GROYSMAN
