The Consulate General of Estonia in San Francisco has arranged with the City of San Francisco for the Estonian flag to fly from San Francisco City Hall on February 24 again this year, in honor of the anniversary of Estonian independence.

The National Archives of Estonia is conducting a competition, the aim of which is to promote the collection and preservation of the cultural heritage of Estonians abroad.

It includes both oral and material heritage, including folklore, life stories and memories, musical traditions, documents, photographs, publications, works of art, etc.

This year's state celebration of the anniversary of Estonian independence takes place on February 24, in Paide.


Although some traditional events will not take place due to the pandemic, President Kaljulaid's address and the anniversary concert will be broadcast on ETV and available to stream worldwide.

This year's independence day events on February 24 will see a NATO flyby in lieu of the traditional parade.

The opposition Estonian Conservative People's Party (EKRE) announced on Thursday that when the new government coalition puts the border treaty between Estonia and Russia before the parliament for ratification, EKRE will prevent its ratification by all legitimate means.

Even with major developments made in technology, the snowy conditions over the past few weeks have given the border guard officers on Estonia's southeastern border reason to use skis, an old-fashioned, but favorable method of moving around.

While traditionally, skiing is considered to be a winter sports discipline or just a way to spend time in the outdoors, they are a permanent fixture in the Police and Border Guard Board's (PPA) equipment.
