National Flag Day 2019

Press release


June 26 was designated by Law 96/20 May 1998 as National Flag Day, being chosen to mark June 26, 1848 when the Revolutionary Government declared the tricolor - red, yellow and blue - as representative of the national flag of all Romanians . The three colors, evenly distributed, represent the principle of equality, their upward distribution signifying verticality.

Buzău County Museum, a culture and research institution operating under the authority of Buzău County Council, in collaboration with the Buzău County Police Inspectorate organizes a cultural-educational program dedicated to the National Flag Day.

In this sense, we are preparing a new series of cultural actions for the public:

  • decorating the building of the headquarters of the Buzău County Museum with tricolor balloons;
  • distribution of tricolor flags to drivers participating in traffic in the Boulevard area Nicolae Bălcescu;
  • the exhibition of two A0 panels with a short history of the Romanian national flag;

The actions will take place on Wednesday, June 26, 2019, starting with 10.00 at the headquarters of the Buzău County Museum.

Access to the museum's collections is also free.

We are waiting for you!

Buzau County Museum

Buzau County Museum is the main museum institution in Buzau County. Its foundations were laid by Basil Iorgulescu and the development of the collections led to several stages of expansion. The current headquarters is the third. From 1977 until now it is housed in the building of the former Girls' School. The building, built between 1931 and 1937, is included in the list of historical monuments, being one of the most imposing buildings in the city.

The permanent exhibitions were opened here in 1980-1981, being subsequently modified and updated in 1986, 1990, 1999-2001, 2004, 2015-2017. The newest project was implemented after the complete restoration of the building (carried out in the period 2010-2015, based on the financing of 36,906,590 lei / 8,201,464 Euros offered through the Regional Operational Program 2007-2013).

In the 1980s and 1990s, the museum's collections became substantially richer as a result of archaeological research, acquisitions, and donations. In addition to the consistent collections of history and archeology, the museum's fund has grown steadily, enriching itself with valuable goods ethnographical, artist, numismatics and in the field of mineralogy and al natural sciences.

Under the auspices of the institution, a series of books were published ("Mousaios Library"), 2 annual scientific bulletins ("Mousaios" and "Annals of the Buzău”), Catalogs and monographs, fruit of the scientific research activity carried out within the museum institution.
