Estonian National Flag flying from Pikk Hermann Tower

Estonian Post will issue a new stamp to commemorate the National Flag and the Flag Tower.

The 45.6 meter Pikk Hermann, a corner tower of the former medieval fortress of Toompea in Tallinn, which now serves as the Estonian parliament building, has always been the main flag tower of the country.

The decision to fly the Estonian blue, black and white national flag from Pikk Hermann was first made by the government of the young Republic of Estonia on 12 December 1918.

The flag at the tip of Pikk Hermann is hoisted every day at sunrise, but not before 7 a.m., and is lowered at sundown, but not later than 10 p.m.
