Kashubs in Canada celebrate Kashubian Flag Day on August 18. They pay respect to the Kashubian Nation on that date. It is a very important day in Kashubian history. There were times when the Kashubian flag was challenged. On August 18 1929 the Kashubian flag was being pulled down from masts by the Polish People Republic. When the flag was displayed publicly for the first time at the founding congress of the Kashubian Regional Union on August 18 1929 in Kartuzy, Kaszebe the authorities sent policemen to pull it down. Kashubs on that day could not believe and understand why they could not fly their national flag on their native soil. Thanks to the organization Kaszebsko Jednota ( Kashubian Unity) the Kashubian flag flies freely today in Kaszebe and is protected. Canadian Kashubs are proud to fly their National Flag of their ancestors.
