White-red-white flag may get a national value status

The Ministry asks for an official resolution on the flag as a historical and cultural value. 

The Art-Siadziba activists came up with an idea to give the flag a national value status.

Now, the organizers of the campaign got the reply of Deputy Minister of Culture Alyaksandr Yatsko, informs Radio Liberty. The reply states that the suggestion may be included into the agenda of the Scientific-Methodological Council right after the response from the Academy of Sciences.

This means, the Council will be obliged to consider the issue of including the white-red-white flag into the list of non-material national and historical values of the Republic of Belarus within 30 days since they get a resolution from the Academy of Sciences.

The 'Chaser' coat-of-arms is already in the list.
