The Estonian blue-black-and-white national flag waves in the highest flagstaff in Estonia – on the renewed Central Square in the centre of Otepää. The flag was hoisted on a 20-metre flagstaff on the National Flag Day on 4 June 2009, when 125 years passed from the day when the first blue-black-and-white flag was commemorated and consecrated. Next to the flag are information stands with the story of the Estonian flag, and in the nearby Community Garden, you can learn exciting facts about the history of Otepää.
The flag consecrated on 4 June 1884 was initially the flag of Estonian University Students, then the Estonian national flag, and when the Republic of Estonia was established, blue, black, and white were declared the national colours.
