91 today…. (part one)

Wednesday 29 October, 2014 by Uncle Spike

The Republic of Türkiye is 91 today, and across the country there are celebrations led by schools, and huge flags hanging from many buildings.

Due to internal politics, it is a much more subdued affair these days, but even still, celebrations were held today for the local schools, with the mayor, chiefs of local armed forces, police and the town governor.

These young ladies patriotically wore shirts bearing the signature of Atatürk, our nations founder.

In addition to the military significance of the founding of the Republic, there are also many traditional costumes and dancing to be seen.
