Astana City celebrations have officially kicked off. Traditional flag-raising ceremony was held at the square of State symbols. 450 square meters of the sky-blue banner symbolizing the unity and independence was raised to the sky. President Nazarbayev taking part in the ceremony said that in a quarter of a century we have created a strong country and won its rightful place on the world stage.

 

Nursultan NAZARBAYEV, PRESIDENT OF KAZAKHSTAN:

 

This year we celebrate the 18th anniversary of Astana - the age of maturity. By this time we have already conquered high peaks so new perspectives become visible from them. Born in independence, Astana is growing rapidly changing for the better. The city is at the forefront of the country, uniting it and inspiring for new achievements.

 

Nursultan NAZARBAYEV PRESENTS SHOULDER MARKS TO YOUNG OFFICERS:

 

Apart from the flag-raising the long-awaited summer celebrations feature another tradition. On this day, best graduates of military schools receive shoulder marks. It is a special honor to receive the first gold stars from the hands of the Supreme Commander Nursultan Nazarbayev.

 

Nursultan NAZARBAYEV, PRESIDENT OF KAZAKHSTAN:

 

These days, thousands of young Kazakhstanis graduate from military schools and become mature. You start your journey in a festive atmosphere under the country's flag. It is symbolic because you have chosen a special profession, which is a matter of respect in society. This profession is to defend the Motherland. You have spent several years to acquire knowledge, new skills, to understand the value of friendship and mutual assistance. Now you have to apply all this in practice.

 

Kirill BUTENKO, GRADUATE OF MILITARY MEDICAL ACADEMY, SAINT PETERSBURG:

 

We studied healthcare in aviation. We will serve for air defense. We are 100% ready to worthily perform our task and organize the medical service.
