Today, Ukrainians around the world will celebrate Vyshyvanka Day.
In celebration of Ukraine’s history and culture, they will wear the iconic embroidered shirts known as Vyshyvankas.
The embroidery is a traditional part of Ukrainian dress, and each garment tells a unique story. Each vivid colour and symbol woven reflects and celebrates the wearer’s local culture and territory.
Vyshyvanka Day is a celebration of Ukrainian unity all over the world, regardless of where they live or what language they speak.
The Ukrainian community has been a vibrant contributor throughout the history of Ontario, and on behalf of the Ontario Liberal Party, I want to wish all those celebrating a Happy Vyshyvanka Day!
