The 28 Novembre marks the Albanian independence feast that is celebrated by all the Albanians, at home or scattered around the world.
In fact the Flag Day is a very heartfelt event and it is customary to celebrate it by organizing parties with music and traditional foods. It is an important anniversary for Albanian history and contains, scattered over time, three crucial moments for the Shqiptar people.
- 28 November of 1443 Giorgio Kastriota Skanderbeg, heroic leader, left the Turkish army in Hungary to fight the Ottomans from Kruja
- On the same day of the 1912 Ismail Qemal raised the Albanian flag from a balcony of Vlore, declaring Albania's independence from the Ottomans.
- And again the 28 November, this time of the 1944, was released Scutari, the last Albanian city in Nazi hands. Destiny wanted precisely this date, among all, to remain etched in the history of Albania.
This year, however, the bodies of the victims of the November 26 earthquake are being extracted from the rubble. The official death toll has risen to 44, according to Prime Minister Edi Rama. Nine other bodies, he said, were pulled from the rubble overnight.
