The raising of the flag on the southwest tower of the parliament will become "an especially clear sign of solidarity with the Ukrainian people", as the Bundestag administration reported on Thursday, 23 February.

Usually the black, red and gold flag of Germany is raised on three out of the four towers of the parliament, and the blue European Union flag with stars is raised on the southeast tower .

A similar campaign is planned at the official residence of Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the Federal President of Germany. At 7:00 on Friday, 24 February, a blue and yellow flag of Ukraine will be raised in front of the Bellevue Palace, where the main political event dedicated to the first anniversary of the Russian full-scale invasion of Ukraine will be held.
