A familiar and atmospheric ceremony was held to hoist the huge Székely flag on Sunday afternoon. The sky of Zeteváralja shined in gold and sky-blue during the flag raising ceremony and more than one hundred people followed the event and were touched by the biggest Székely flag’s inauguration.
According to the szekelyhon.ro website, the flag is more than fifteen meters long and seven meters wide. The large crowd sang the Székely Anthem accompanied by the music of the brass band of Zeteváralja. The Székely flag was hoisted with a thunderous applause and the mass recited the poem Invisible Flag by Albert Wass as a sign of their respect. Furthermore, the Gyula Zathureczky Reformed Chorus of Baraolt also sang during the ceremony.
As part of an outside holy mass the Székely flag was blessed and then the old and even the new members of the consistory of Zeteváralja took an oath of loyalty for the laws of the Catholic Church. Thus, the members constituted their help for the church and they also testified to live continuously a holy-good life, the szekelyhon.ro website added.
