Public Council under the Lviv Regional State Administration supported the initiative of the public and appealed to the President of Ukraine with a request to introduce at national level a national holiday – "Day of Ukrainian Embroidery".
Traditionally Day of Ukrainian Embroidery is celebrated on the third Thursday in May. This festival already has a world title, but despite all the treatment still has not become public. This is why NGO "Community Development" together with the LRSA and the LCC of this year will organize a Festival of Ukrainian Embroidery. Besides, public activists together with the local authorities sent to the President and the Verkhovna Rada the collective letter with the request to officially introduce Day of Ukrainian Embroidery, supported the initiative the Public Council under the LRSA.
It is worth adding that the activists are not asking for another weekend. The official status will make Day of Ukrainian Embroidery recognizable and a native feast, and the Ukrainians will be proud to wear shirts even on weekdays.
We Express our gratitude to the Public Council under the LRSA for the support of such initiatives.
