The City of Fort Saskatchewan is showing its solidarity with Ukraine.

In honour of Ukraine’s 31st Independence Day (Aug. 24), Fort Saskatchewan raised the Ukrainian flag to show its support for the country. Exactly six months ago, Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

The flag can be found in the CN train station’s parking lot. 

“Russia’s war against Ukraine has accounted for many lost lives, damaged infrastructure and displaced Ukrainians,” wrote the city in a post on social media.

The city will raise the flag again on Sept. 7 to honour Ukrainian Heritage Day.
