‘A flag is not as hard to hoist than carry it through everyday life.’ said the Lithuanian poet Justinas Marcinkevičius.

We hoisted the flag, symbolising the idea of Lithuania as a maritime state, together with the Lithuanian maritime community twenty years ago in the form of JŪRA MOPE SEA magazine. Serious and responsible, we carried it together for several years. We established unprecedented Lithuanian maritime awards, named after the cyclone Anatol, which ravaged Lithuania. Later the name was replaced with a more meaningful Windrose. The purpose of these international awards was to honour the representatives of the maritime industry business, science and politics from Lithuania and abroad, suggested by various companies and selected by competent international commissions.

There are numerous proverbs on stones and roads, such as ‘A small stone may break a wagon even on a good road.’

A small one may indeed, but upon seeing a great stone, the wagon will stop and its driver will make a decision, which way should be taken next. Several years ago by the effort of two states – China and Belarus, a similar stone has risen on the New Silk Road, crossing the Belarusian lands. It seems that this stone, located 25 kilometres from the Belarusian capital of Minsk, is becoming a popular stopping place for numerous travellers that take this road.
