Revival of traditions
Around 1913 new tradition was born, to attach special celebratory nails to flag polls. This tradition becomes especially popular after Latvia becomed independent at 1918.
At 10. April at our museum, general Normunds Plēģermanis celebrated his retirement, after more than 30 years in service. He said thank to all firefighting service for challenges and possibility’s for self-improvement as well as said thanks to his work mates for support and partnership in his time in service. To rekindle the old tradition he attached to firefighting service flag celebratory nail, what he made by himself, to celebrate and mark his time in firefighting service.
We say thanks to N. Plēģermanis for rekindling and support for old traditions, and wish luck strong health and success in coming years.
