Kiev City Council
Kiev City Council or Kyivrada (Ukrainian: Київрада) is the city council of Kiev municipality, the highest representative body of the city community. The members of city council are directly elected by Kievans and the council is chaired by the Mayor of Kiev (who is also directly elected in a separate election independent of the council election). The deputies are elected for five-year terms.
The first ceremonial raising of the yellow-and-blue Ukrainian flag in modern times took place on 24 July 1990 at the flagstaff of the City Council, two years before the flag was officially adopted as the National flag of the Ukrainian state (1992). July 24 was later marked as National Flag Day in Kiev (only). Beginning with 2004, 23 August is celebrated as the Day of the National Flag (in all Ukraine).
