The Bulgarian national flag to wave in New York

The raising of the national flags and the performance of the national anthems of Bulgaria and the United States will mark the Day of freedom of Bulgaria, March 3rd, in New York.

The event takes place for a third consecutive year at the square in front of the historical statue of the bull of Walstreet. It usually garners a lot of attention from the Bulgairan community in New York.

The attending people are greeted by the Bulgarian ambassador in Washington, Lachezar Petkov. He talks of the historical events that lead to the freedom of Bulgaira.

“To this day, I have the pleasure and privilege to represent this independant, democratic and free country, proud member of the European Union and NATO”, said the ambassador Petkov.
