Belarusians now able to hang national flag outside homes

Family celebration under the Belarusian flag. The state will support the desire of Belarusians to hang the national flag outside private homes. Belarusians will be able to do it not only for government but also for family holidays.

At the same time, the flag of another country in Belarus cannot be installed above the Belarusian one. Such changes in the draft law "On state symbols of Belarus" were approved by senators.

Alla Bodak, Deputy Minister of Justice of the Republic of Belarus:
We at the Council of the Republic approved the requirement that the national flag is hung in the room where the presentation of state awards of the Republic of Belarus is taking place and also in the premises that hosts the event in which the President of the Republic of Belarus is taking part. In addition, the national flag will be hung on buildings at the start and end of the school year.
