President Alberto Fernández maintained that the commemoration of Flag Day “is linked to the day Manuel Belgrano left us, who was a singular man.”
Fernández pointed out that the importance of Belgrano is “only comparable to José de San Martín and Martín Miguel de Güemes, who were men who gave everything so that today we are a free and independent country.”
Belgrano “was convinced that the future development of our country lay in education.”
“That today we commemorate the figure of Belgrano is something that we should do today and every day, because these heroes that the country had are the example that we must follow in times of great uncertainty that the world experienced,” he said.
Fernández warned that Argentina “is not that country without a destiny that some want to ask us, but rather it is a country that wants to stand up.”
“We are going to stand up once again, for you, so that you have once and forever the homeland you deserve,” he said, addressing the students who took the oath of allegiance to the flag, and completed his message: “Get ready for a better tomorrow”.
The President led this Monday morning the act of Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag with more than 2,000 fourth grade students at the Kirchner Cultural Center (CCK).
The activity was attended by the Ministers of Education, Jaime Perczyk; of Culture, Tristán Bauer, and of Defense, Jorge Taiana.
