A distinctive feature of the flag is that it shows not one but several national symbols - Tarak-Tamga.

The flag, which measures 39 and 6 meters, was manufactured by the Crimean Tatar Association of Culture and Mutual Aid in Ankara, reported a QHA correspondent.

It is not the first in history celebration of the Flag Day when such a giant Crimean Tatar flag is made. A few years ago a huge flag was unfurled in the central square of the Crimean capital of Simferopol / Akmesdzhit and was recognized the largest national flag. The flag was made and brought to Crimea by a late leader of the Crimean Tatar Association in Bursa, Adnan Suen.

The Day of the Crimean Tatar National Flag is celebrated on June, 26. The celebrations will be held in the cities of Kiev, Kharkov and in Genichesk Area, Kherson region. It is also planned to hold certain celebrations in Crimea unless they are disrupted by the occupation authorities.
