Raising of Christopher’s flags in Town Hall Square

The Vilnius flag-raising ceremony to honour the 700th anniversary of the founding of the capital of Lithuania took place in Town Hall Square. Before this ceremony began, “A Dedication to the Vilnius of the Future”, a letter written by the mayor and vice-mayors of Vilnius, was signed in Vilnius Town Hall starting at 11:30. Locals had the opportunity to see this part of the ceremony broadcast live to Town Hall Square, where three flags were raised with the coat of arms of St Christopher, the patron saint of Vilnius. The official anniversary of Vilnius was accompanied by the bells of the Church of St Casimir, salutes by the Lithuanian Armed Forces Honour Guard Company, and songs and melodies by Lithuania’s best musicians for this occasion.
