Message of greetings from President Gitanas Nausėda on State Day

2021-07-06

Dear Fellow People of Lithuania,

Happy State Day to all of you!

Every July 6 is an opportunity to rediscover and once again appreciate the depth of our historical tradition, to renew our commitment to the State of Lithuania.

Seven hundred and sixty-eight years ago we decided to go West, and we are still on this path marked by the first and only Lithuanian King Mindaugas.

To follow clearly-set value-based guidelines, to stand firmly guarding the West, and to play an active role in the immediate neighborhood – all of this remains a unique Lithuanian leadership tradition.

It is only by fully perceiving our historical mission that we can grow as citizens of Lithuania and the creators of a modern European state.

Therefore, I call on you to continue boldly on the path towards our dreams. Let us not be afraid of being ahead of our time! Let us stand united and dignified, let us celebrate our statehood together!

Gitanas Nausėda, President of the Republic of Lithuania
