Ukraine celebrates Embroidery Day. This holiday traditionally falls on the third Thursday in May.

The embroidered shirt can hardly be called an exclusively traditional outfit – many Ukrainians wear it as a holiday or casual wear.

The peculiarity of this year is that many embroidered shirts were worn by the military, even on the front line. Ukrainians who fled the war also wear embroidered shirts on this day.

“Today, the national costume is not only a symbol of Ukrainianness. It is like a manifesto: our struggle, indomitability, pride in our people and our country,” Vitaliy Klitschko wrote on Facebook.

Pets are dressed in embroidered shirts. This year the famous SES dog Patron became a four-legged star in an embroidered shirt.

“Supporting the traditions, today our Patron changed his” armor “to an embroidered shirt,” the SES wrote.
