He noted that the establishment of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic was the beginning of a new stage in the life of our people. The Azerbaijan Democratic Republic  which is an example of a state that combines the democratic values ​​of Europe with the features of Eastern culture and contains many elements that were considered revolutionary for its time was the result of the national and political consciousness and high culture of our people. Although the life of the independent Republic of Azerbaijan was not long, it did a great job in a short period of time - 23 months. In this short period, the national flag, anthem,emblem ,Azerbaijani citizenship were established, and the national army was created. Numerous laws were passed during that period, including provisions that were considered very progressive. Recognition of democratic rights and freedoms, equal rights of all citizens, regardless of ethnicity or religion, and even the right of women to vote in many European countries, the proclamation of the Azerbaijani language as the state language, special attention to the development of education , culture and other activities.
Unfortunately, under the age of two,  ADR was temporarily overthrown by the Bolsheviks. At that time, it was impossible to preserve the state created in difficult political conditions. Although the republic has existed for a very short time, it has ignited the national-patriotic spirit of the Azerbaijani people, the desire for freedom and independence. After that, for the first time, the great leader Heydar Aliyev officially raised the tricolor flag as the official state flag at the session of the Supreme Assembly of the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic. This laid the foundation for the path to independence. Taking such a courageous step in the current situation of the Soviet Union once again showed how much the Great Leader was attached to the people and the state, how courageous and irreversible he is on this path. Today we proudly state that independent and modern Azerbaijan is developing. Preservation and development of the traditions of statehood in Azerbaijan is one of the main activities of President Ilham Aliyev.
