The Head of State conveyed his Independence Day greetings on his official Facebook profile:

“From Vlora, I wish all Albanians in Albania, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Montenegro, and everywhere in the world a Happy Independence Day! 

Flag Day, as the most representative and unifying symbol of our nation, is the most beautiful celebration of Albanian identity. 

Today, we are an independent state thanks to the wisdom, courage, and determination of Albanian patriots 111 years ago, in the name of love for our homeland and nation, in the name of love for this flag, in the name of freedom. 

With freedom comes responsibility.

Let the inspiring model of our founding fathers, who gave everything for a free and independent Albania, guide us in all our endeavors for the country and the Albanian people. 

Let us be led by high aspirations, the highest of which is the protection of the values of peace, democracy, and the prosperity of Albania.

Happy celebration!”
