In the presence of Assist. Prof. Dr. Lazgin Abdi Jamil, President of the University of Zakho, alongside a number of regional governmental authorities, party authorities, and parliamentarians; the Kurdistan Flag Day on December 17th was honored by staff members and students of the University of Zakho. Expressing a total support for the Kurdish Peshmerga Forces in their fight against the terrorist organization ISIL, a minute's silence in memory of the fallen martyrs was held and afterwards the Kurdistan flag was hoisted and the Kurdish national anthem played, as a symbol of the Kurdish desire for freedom.

Students celebrated this festive day by wearing Kurdish flag pins and traditional clothes decorated in the vibrant colours of red, yellow, and green found on the flag of Kurdistan. During the ceremony a number of activities took place including a marathon, recitation of patriotic poems by the Kurdish poet Mr. Shaban Sulaiman, and Kurdish folklore dance. Finally, the winners of the marathon were awarded by the President of the University of Zakho.

The Kurdistan Flag Day is celebrated annually on December 17th since 2009, when the Parliament of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq passed a law to commemorate the Kurdistan Republic, also known as the Mahabad Republic. In 1946, shortly before the Iranian State reasserted its authority over the Kurdish territory, the founder of the short-lived Republic of Mahabad, Qazi Muhammad, entrusted the flag to the legendary Kurdish leader, then chief of the Republic's army, Mullah Mustafa Barzani. Three months after the Iranian army took control of Mahabad, Iranian authorities executed President Qazi Muhammad by hanging.

The flag was first designed by the exiled leaders of the nationalist Xoybun movement in the early 1920s. It was first used as a state flag by the self-declared Kurdish Republic of Ararat (1927-1930) when its territory was forcibly retaken by the fledgling Republic of Turkey.

On the 6th till the 8th of December 2015, Mr. Ahmed Loqman Mustafa, Assistant Researcher at the Information Communication Technology Center at the University of Zakho, participated in the Open Translation Project Workshop and attended the TEDGlobal Conference which had been held in Geneva, Switzerland. In the Open Translation Project Workshop, Mr. Ahmed gave a brief overview about the Kurdish nation and the Kurdish cause, aiming to introduce Kurdistan and its people to other nationalities, who for the first time in their lives have heard about the Kurds.

At the TEDGlobal Conference, which was held in a former power plant right in the middle of the Rhone River in downtown Geneva, the conference gathered 900 attendees from nearly 80 countries. Against a stage backdrop designed by the students of the Geneva School of Art and Design, 15 speakers and performers explored the newest thinking on everything from food to physics, economics and art history.

Hosted by Bruno Giussani, TED’s European Director, on December 8, 2015, both sessions challenged the audience with surprising and insightful connections between what we know and what we hope to find. And during the breaks, drones flew in the building, robots walked around, VR headsets were available for trying, and a serendipity door art installation offered a glimpse into the Deep Web.
