March - The Restoration of Lithuanian’s Independence

 

                       Jurate from Lithuania

11 March, 1990. Supreme Soviet declared the        sovereignty of the Lithuanian state.

And we try to do our best. 25 years on, we are in the middle of Europe. Not only in terms of geography, which by the way is true, but also as a proud member of the European Union and, from 2015, also as a member of its core, the Eurozone. Our euro coins, spreading throughout Europe the image of the Lithuanian knight, the Chaser (Vytis), also spread the word Freedom, inscribed on their edge alongside Unity and Well-being.
