House of Representatives member and opposition activist Hanna Kanapatskaya on Monday presented to the public a bill that would grant protected status to Belarus' historically national white-red-white flag and allow people to display it without restriction.
The bill would permit people to display the flag on public holidays and during celebrations, including those organized by the government.
The bill would require people to treat the flag with "respect" and entitle local soviets to order the flag displayed alongside the state red-and-green flag "on certain days or permanently."
Some 100 people, including opposition politicians, civil society activists and historians, attended the presentation.
