US Ambassador hangs the Romani flag at the US Embassy in Prague
As in previous years, the Embassy of the United States of America in Prague hung the Romani flag on its building to mark International Romani Day (8 April). US Ambassador Stephen King hung the flag from the window of the Embassy on the afternoon of Monday, 9 April.
"I am proud that I can celebrate the cultural heritage of Romani people and recall the efforts of the USA for the equal treatment of Romani people worldwide. Bachtalo Romano Ďives! All the best for Romani Day," the Ambassador tweeted along with a video of himself hanging out the flag.
The Romani flag was also flown on the building of the Czech Foreign Ministry yesterday and was flown by the City of Liberec and the Liberec Regional Authority on Friday, 6 April. International Romani Day has been celebrated in the Czech Republic since 2001 and this year's three-day celebration in Prague culminated in Sunday's gala evening at the Archa theater.
