Republic of Uzbekistan Celebrates National Flag Day
18 November 2023
The National Flag of the Republic of Uzbekistan, along with the National Emblem and the National Anthem, is the official state symbol and the symbol of the country’s sovereignty.
The Flag was approved on 18 November 1991 at the eighth session of the Senate of the Oliy Majlis of the Republic of Uzbekistan, two months after the proclamation of the country’s independence.
The symbols of the National Flag continue the traditions typical to the flags of the mighty powers that existed on the territory of the country, at the same time reflecting the natural specifics of the Republic, the national and cultural identity of the people.
