Then it was delivered to Sochi, where the “Flag Relay” project was officially launched. In December 2017, the flag was sent to the International Space Station, where it stayed for more than two months before returning to Earth in late February 2018. After the start of the international stage of the relay race in Madrid, the flag went on a journey to 20 countries that previously hosted the world championships in professional skills.
After the stage in Paris, Relay events will also take place in Ireland, Belgium, the Province of Taipei, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, Brazil, Austria, Italy, the UK, France and Japan.
Further the Flag Relay will start its route across Russia, and then across the Republic of Tatarstan. In Kazan, the flag will be delivered on the day of the opening ceremony of the WorldSkills Kazan 2019 World Cup, which will be held from August 22 to 27, 2019.
