President Klaus Iohannis has attended the illumination ceremony of Trajan’s column in Rome in the colors of Romania’s flag-red, yellow and blue on Sunday night.

The Romanian head of state has been welcomed by tens of Romanians who live in Italy, many of them wearing Romanian ethnic ensembles and waving tricolor flags.

Italy is the country where the largest Romanian Diaspora community resides and this is the first state official visit paid by a Romanian president in Italy in the past 45 years.

Some of the Romanians chanted ant-government messages: “We want back home, thieves won’t let us”, “PSD, the red plague”, „United we save the entire Romania!”.

President Iohannis, accompanied by his wife, Carmen, has waited for the column to be illuminated surrounded by the Romanians who arrived at the event.

At 20:50 when the column has been illuminated in red, yellow and blue, the Romanians attending the ceremony started sing Romania’s national anthem.
