Today Ukraine marks the National Flag Day. The holiday was established by the presidential decree of August 23, 2004.

In 2009, the decree was amended and the annual official flag-raising ceremony throughout Ukraine on August 23 was established.

The national blue and yellow flag was officially hoisted for the first time above the Stryi town hall in Lviv region on March 14, 1990.

The Verkhovna Rada granted the blue and yellow flag the status of the National Flag of Ukraine on January 28, 1992.
