Persons under international protection, who are currently residing in Latvia, celebrated May 4, the Day of the Restoration of Independence of the Republic of Latvia, in a small group.
People from Belarus, Turkey, and Afghanistan went to the Freedom Monument and were agreeably surprised by the flower carpet, because not in all cultures do flowers play such an important role - to show respect and love for freedom - as in Latvia.
Together with volunteers, Latvians, Iranians, and Indians had the opportunity to sit down to white-clad tables to get acquainted with traditional Latvian celebration dishes. While getting to know the tradition of the White Tablecloth Celebration, all the guests also wore flag ribbons, made lanterns, and learned to sing Latvian folk songs.
