Ukraine Flag Raising Ceremony 2023

August 24, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

The Ukraine seal and small portion of the flag is in the top left corner. The information for the event is listed in the center of the page to the bottom.

The City of Jersey City, Mayor Steven M. Fulop, Office of Municipal Council and Office of Cultural Affairs are proud to recognize the Ukrainian National Home and the Ukrainian Community Center as we celebrate the 32nd Anniversary of  Ukraine’s Independence during the Flag Raising Ceremony on Thursday, August 24, 2023.

The parliament of Ukraine added to the will of the Ukrainian people by formally declaring an independent Ukrainian state on August 24, 1991, thereby, taking the first step towards establishing a free and democratic state and ending the brutal totalitarian regime who cost the lives of millions of Ukrainians. After centuries of foreign dominations under both the Russian Empire and then the Soviet totalitarian regime, Ukrainians today continue to honor the brave people of Ukraine in their struggle to maintain the internationally recognized territorial integrity of their nation as sovereign and inviolable.

The efforts of Ukrainians around the world to preserve their language, culture and history must be acknowledged and encouraged so that this effort continues for the sake of future generations. Such preservations have allowed Ukrainians to make significant contributions to the culture and society across United States.
