Tajikistan's lower chamber of parliament (the Majlisi Namoyandagon) has approved amendments to the law "On Public Holidays of the Republic of Tajikistan", creating a new annual national holiday, National Flag Day, on November 24.

The proposed amendment was sent to the Majlisi Namoyandagon, earlier this month (2009-11-05), by Tajikistan's President, Emomali Rahmon.

This new, November 24, National Flag Day, holiday will be a regular working day, akin to the other 3 working holidays specified as per the Labor Code of Tajikistan and the Law on Public Holidays, last amended in 2005 (2005-12-30), namely: The Day of the Tajik Language (July 22), Mehrgon(Harvest holiday), and Sada(also occurring in the fall).
