Estonian Citizen’s Day is celebrated on November 26. Every year, the Foreign Ministry awards letters of appreciation to people and civic organizations who have promoted and upheld Estonia around the world.
Piret Noorhani received a letter for her efforts in Canada in organizing archive materials on the history of Estonians, and Iivi Zajedova received a letter for her continued contribution in promoting and introducing Estonian causes in the Czech Republic.
November 26 marks the day in 1918 that the Provincial Assembly issued an edict on Estonian citizenship. Citizen’s Day aims to bolster awareness of citizenship status and raise civic pride and is dedicated to the rights and responsibilities of Estonian citizens.
