"Flags of Independence": a patriotic journey in the National Museum of the History of Ukraine
In the heart of Kyiv, in the National Museum of the History of Ukraine, you can immerse yourself in a journey through the rich and turbulent history, which is told by its numerous flags. This is a continuous exhibition called "Flags of Independence" — a unique collection of Ukrainian flags from important historical events of the late 20th and 21st centuries.

Flags are more than just colorful scraps of fabric. These are symbols that represent the essence of the nation, its history and aspirations. For Ukraine, a country with a complicated past marked by periods of independence and foreign rule, flags have played a crucial role in preserving its identity.

The "Flags of Independence" exhibition allows you to get acquainted with 17 unique exhibits. For example, the flag to be raised near the Kyiv administration in 1990; the blue-yellow flag of 1988 from the Kyiv rally, which was given to the museum by the dissident Oles Shevchenko; flag from the polar station "Akademik Vernadskyi", space shuttle, yacht "Lelitka".

Some of these flags are related to the tragic events of the Russian-Ukrainian war, such as fragments of the Ukrainian flag from the television tower destroyed by the occupiers on Mount Karachun near Sloviansk; a flag from the Donetsk airport with the signatures of Ukrainian defenders; the flag of Ukraine, which volunteer Victoria Kononova rescued and took out of occupied Luhansk and others.

It is better to immerse yourself in the history of each exhibit thanks to the information leaflets on the stands that "accompany" them. And the atmosphere around each flag is appropriate. After all, the understanding that this is a part of the country's history gives each of these exhibits additional emotional power.

"Flags of Independence" is an invaluable educational resource. It not only informs visitors about key events in the history of modern Ukraine, but also fosters a sense of patriotism and pride. Visitors to the exhibition can benefit from the large amount of information presented in the National Museum of the History of Ukraine.

The permanent exhibition of the National Museum of the History of Ukraine "Flags of Independence" is a testimony to the enduring spirit of the people who faced centuries of trials. Through the power of flags, this exhibition tells about the rich history of Ukraine, its struggle for freedom and its emergence as a modern sovereign state.
