Kurdish Leaders Extend Congratulations on Kurdistan Flag Day Celebration

Kurdish President Masoud Barzani, leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), and Prime Minister Masrour Barzani extend warm wishes to the people on the occasion of Kurdistan Flag Day.

In a heartfelt message shared on social media on Sunday, Kurdish leader Masoud Barzani congratulated the people of Kurdistan on the nation's Flag Day, emphasizing the flag's significance as a symbol of resilience, peace, and self-confidence for the Kurdish people.

"Esteemed people of Kurdistan, Happy Kurdistan Flag Day to all of you. Our flag is a symbol of resilience, peace, and self-confidence of our people," he expressed in a post on X today.

The annual celebration, observed on December 17th, brings together the people of the Kurdistan Region, commemorating the first hoisting of the flag in 1946 to represent the Republic of Mahabad in Iran.

Prime Minister Masrour Barzani also joined in the festivities, extending his congratulations to the Kurdish people through a video posted on X. He paid tribute to the flag as a representation of all the diverse components of Kurdistan and honored those who sacrificed their lives for the nation.

"On Kurdistan's flag day, we honor the flag that represents all the different components of Kurdistan. We salute those who gave their lives for this flag and Kurdistan's land," Prime Minister Masrour Barzani expressed in his video message.

The Kurdistan flag, officially recognized by the Region's parliament, boasts three colors, each carrying symbolic significance. The red color symbolizes the sacrifices made for freedom and recognition as a distinct nation. Green embodies Kurdistan's picturesque landscapes and vibrant life. Yellow represents light and life, with 21 sunbeams on the flag symbolizing Nawroz, celebrated on the 21st of March every year.

The celebration of Kurdistan's flag day serves to unite the people of the Kurdistan Region, fostering a sense of pride and solidarity among its citizens.
