Latvia celebrates restoration of independence day

Latvian President Raimonds Vejonis led the way May 4 on a tree-planting initiative to mark the restoration of Latvia's independence and launch centenary celebrations.

100 oak trees are to be planted at various locations around Latvia's borders as celebrations of the centenary of Latvia's founding officially get under way.


The actual centenary will be on November 18 next year.

Meanwhile the so-called 'White Tablecloth Day' initiative launched last year makes a return with people in all communities inviting each other to sit around a table and exchange ideas - preferably with some tasty food to hand as well.

Our colleagues at the LTV news department have produced this short video to mark the occasion.
