Albania celebrates its Flag Day or Independence Day, this year marking 105 years of independence, on 28th November, in remembrance of the event that took place in 1912 in Valona, when then Albanian leader Ismail Qemali proclaimed the independence of the Albanian state as he raised the Albanian national flag with the two-headed eagle.

The reception was attended by representatives of the Serbian Government, members of the diplomatic corps and figures from cultural and public life.
