COUNTRY ON THE SKIN

The historic character rider on the horse became the national emblem of Belarus in 1991. After coming to power of Alexander Lukashenko, this flag was banned, and replaced in 1995 were returned to the Soviet state symbols of the Republic of Belarus. Image with a rider on a horse "Pagonia" (chase) all sorts of way was erased from the surrounding reality - they were replaced on the national currency, passports, universities and even textbooks. For a demonstration on the streets of the Belarusian city of images with the "Pagonia" (chase) citizens can be arrested or fined. This coat of arms for patriotic Belarusian youth has become a symbol of protest and historical memory, which they keep on their skin.
