During the current holiday time when Albanians all around the world celebrate Flag Day, the date of November 29th is also for me a very personal date: the birthday anniversary of my Mother, Giuseppina, who remains forever in my heart, as well as the family flag, now 84 years old, that she preserved.  Although written a few years ago, a beautiful article by Pertefe Leka, Vice President of M. & M. Ivanaj Foundation Institut in Tirana, that describes this relationship, is shared here for all who might be interested in history.
