Olena Petelko’s flag: Ukraine

Olena Petelko used needle work to depict her country’s flag.

“Ukraine is a country with a rich history and old traditions.  Ukrainians are known for their hospitality.  One of the traditions is to meet dear guests with bread and salt on an embroidery towel.  Ukraine is a country of arts and crafts.  National embroidery has long roots so that is why I decided to present my flag trhough embroidery.  It is one of my hobbies.”
