“The Lithuanian and Georgian Flags of Freedom Road” event signifies the unity of Lithuanian and Georgian people who love the freedom of their countries and uphold democratic values, the Georgian Embassy said in a press release.

The flag holding ceremony was attended by Dalia Grybauskaitė, President of the Republic of Lithuania, Loreta Graužinienė, Speaker of the Seimas, prominent politician Vytautas Landsbergis, Vilnius Mayor Remigijus Šimašius, Kaunas Mayor Visvaldas Matijošaitis, Members of the Seimas, Heads of the Diplomatic Missions accredited in the Republic of Lithuania.

“It is a particular pleasure to see here today the representatives of Lithuanian youth, holding these two flags. Ninety-seven years ago, in 1918, the dream of our ancestors came true and Georgia declared independence, setting itself on the European course as a democratic republic. The nice picture that we see today – two beautiful flags of Lithuania and Georgia embraced in colourful harmony – symbolizes the friendship of Lithuanian and Georgian people, who love the freedom of their countries and uphold democratic values. I want to thank Lithuanian people for this support, and for being with Georgia throughout all these years and on this day. As our flags are intertwined today, so are intertwined our freedom roads,” said the Ambassador of Georgia Ms. Khatuna Salukvadze.

The Flag of Georgia was made by the youth group from Anykščiai, directed by Erikas Druskinas, the Director of Širvintos Culture Centre and upheld by the school children from Vilnius. The “IDS Borjomi Europoje“ Company sponsored the making of the Georgian flag.
