Albanians gained the right of the National Flag in Montenegro


 Montenegrin Albanians gained the right to unfold their national flag in the cities with the majority ethnic Albanian population, but also on their family holidays.

The Montenegrin government has finally approved the Albanian demand that has been permanent since the independence of the small Balkan state.

Under Montenegrin law, if anyone unfolds other flags will end up in jail.

A year ago, two Serbs were arrested in Budva because they unfolded the flag of their country in the window of a hotel.


Meanwhile, two years ago, four Albanians arriving from the European Championship in France, where Albania participated, were arrested in Kotor while holding the Albanian flag on the windows of the car.

Minister Mehmet Zenka stressed that with this law, the minorities have the right to freely use national symbols on family holidays, cultural and political manifestations as well as local institutions in countries where they compose over 5% of the population.

But the flags of other countries will not be allowed to be used in three places of the country: in the Assembly of Montenegro, in the Government and public and private universities in the country.

The Montenegrin government is afraid of a resurgence of Serbian nationalism, which constitutes the majority of the opposition in the country, which according to the latest census accounts for about 37% of the Montenegrin population.

Serbs in Montenegro have a party that is part of the opposition group, have strong mountainous tourism businesses in the Shabjuk area and areas bordering on Serbia, but also strong ties with the Russians..
