“The national flag is a symbol that has a unifying power. It awakens national pride and a passionate feeling of love for the Fatherland in the heart of every citizen,” said Emomali Rahmon.

Undoubtedly, as the Head of State says, protection of the flag and veneration of it is the embodiment of high national feeling and patriotism. The people of Tajikistan, especially teenagers and young people, from the day the State Flag was adopted, always show respect for it and consider it one of the national shrines, a symbol of a peaceful and prosperous life.

On November 16, speaking at a solemn meeting in honor of the 30th anniversary of the XVI session of the Supreme Council at the Arbob Palace, President Emomali Rahmon called the adoption of the State Flag as the state symbol of independent Tajikistan, one of the important achievements of this historic session, personification of independence, unity and national pride of the people of the country.
