Vlach’s National Day marked in Skopje


The Vlach community in Macedonia marked Sunday the Vlach’s National Day (May 23) at a ceremony held in a Skopje hotel.

Macedonia is the only country where the Vlach community is incorporated into the Constitution. May 23 is a non-working day for members of the community according to the country's law on holidays.

"Macedonia is an example not only in the Balkans, but also across Europe, of how diversity should be advanced. We believe it is perhaps the strongest argument as to why Macedonia should be part of the European starry sky. The Vlach community has a special place in the Republic of Macedonia, because you and your ancestors have played important roles - historical, cultural and political - in the establishment of our joint country," Deputy PM and Defense Minister Radmila Sekerinska told the event.

She led a government delegation, including Interior Minister Oliver Spasovski and Deputy Economy Minister Kire Naumov, to the ceremony marking the Vlach’s National Day.
