Europe Day Glasgow


Stalls, banners and a lot of flags! 

On the bagpipes. MSP Stuart McMillan plays Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, the European anthem. 
Alongside him, music from around Europe, 
Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann (Irish Folk Group), Gosciniec” (Polish Folk Group) and the Estonian traditional musicians Cätlin and Marko Mägi.

Attended by Fiona Hyslop, the Scottish minister was emphatic that this was not the last Europe Day.

 Scotland, she insisted, would continue to build and sustain links with European neighbours.

Scotland was also the highlight of entertainment with the Highland Dances by the Scottish Teachers Alliance and HIPSWAY who carried out a set after the flag parade from the representative attendees.
