For more than 1000 years, since the dawn of the State of Lithuania, we have been led by our faith in the future.
In 2018, we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the restored State of Lithuania. Despite all the challenges we have faced, our faith in the future is our strongest power.
Our faith withstood the toughest trials. It led us to restore the State of Lithuania in 1918, which was our first step towards the current modern State of Lithuania.
For hundreds of years, we have been striving to build a State, whose people could freely share their achievements with the world.

Restored State of Lithuania turns 100

In 1918, following a dark period in history, bright minds gathered to talk. Twenty visionaries:

Aleksandras Stulginskis, Alfonsas Petrulis, Antanas Smetona, Donatas Malinauskas, Jokūbas Šernas, Jonas Smilgevičius, Jonas Vailokaitis, Jonas Basanavičius, Jonas Vileišis, Jurgis Šaulys, Justinas Staugaitis, Kazimieras Steponas Šaulys, Kazys Bizauskas, Mykolas Biržiška, Petras Klimas, Pranas Dovydaitis, Saliamonas Banaitis, Stanislovas Narutavičius, Steponas Kairys and Vladas Mironas restored the State of Lithuania by their faith in the future rather than guns.


4 festive years

The four years of celebrations of Centennial of Lithuania's Restoration will mark a period starting with the 1917 Vilnius Conference and ending with the convention of the Constituent Assembly of Lithuania on 15 May 1920. It is the time, when Lithuania was built with the hands of its people.    

To celebrate this occasion, the forthcoming four years will see a number of social initiatives, concerts, and other events, so that all of us could celebrate our unity and continue to build our country the way we want to see it.   

What will Lithuania look like?

For four years, Lithuania will use a visual identity that was created exclusively for the 100th anniversary of the restoration of the State.

The new logo belongs to all of us.



We believed in our Independence 100 years ago, and we continue to live in this spirit today. Your active participation in submitting suggestions and ideas for the program to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the restoration of Lithuania’s independence proves that.  
Your 300 submissions have found their place in the Programme for the Commemoration of the Centennial of Lithuania's Restoration. 
We will continue this close cooperation: we will add new initiatives to the programme each year. 
A commission chaired by the Prime Minister leads the programme implementation.  The programme implementation is monitored by a Working Group for Monitoring of the Implementation of the Programme for the Commemoration of the Centennial of Lithuania's Restoration, which has been formed by the Prime Minister.
