Queen of Denmark Visits Tallinn
Queen Margrethe II of Denmark was on an official visit to Tallinn on the weekend of June 15, the 800th anniversary of the date when, according to legend, the Dannebrog, the red and white flag of Denmark, fell from the skies during the Battle of Lyndanise in what is now Tallinn. The queen was on hand for the opening of many exhibitions dedicated to the anniversary.

Saare Vikat, meie New Yorgi rahvatantsurühm, on viimastel aastatel puudutanud palju inimesi meie kogukonnast. Soovin oma vaatenurgast Teile meie lugu esitada. Kuigi olen proovinud parimas kirjakeeles seda esile tuua, eks leidub mõni viga. Palun andestust nende eksimuste ja eelarvamuste eest, mida oleks võinud paremini esitada. Siin on neljas ja viimane etapp. Nautigem!

Minu arm does not mean "my arm" (with which to latch onto your arm); it's short for armastus (love). Its sound is a bit less harsh than the Finnish equivalent rakkaus, but who says love is always gentle and sweet? Armastus jätab tihti armi – love often leaves a scar. It's quite ironic and symbolic that the other meaning of the word arm in Estonian is scar. Photo: Riina Kindlam

Estonia Gains Non-Permanent UN Security Council Seat
Estonia has gained a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council for 2020-2021, following a vote at the international body's headquarters in New York.

The Estonian American National Council (EANC) is once again joining forces with our Central and East European Coalition (CEEC) colleagues to help Estonian Americans and other regional diaspora members contact their Members of Congress (MoCs) on issues that impact Baltic and European security. On June 13th, we are holding an advocacy day to engage with Senators and Representatives on a number of topics and current legislation. One of EANC’s missions is to help Estonian Americans connect with their Congressional representation on issues that impact Estonia’s security, and this is our latest effort to further this goal. We regularly share our concerns and ideas with Congress and the Administration and work to raise the awareness of our Senators and Representatives regarding specific legislation that addresses our issues.
