Romanian Navy Day is celebrated every year in Constanta. This is an event where optimism and appetency of life harmoniously blends with the celebration of those who have dedicated their life to to sea. Gunshots, dressing ship rainbow fashion, the speech of the Navy’s Commander, intonation of the national anthem, throwing a flower anchor into the water (for the memory of the sailor heroes), sailor sport games, vessels contests, fireworks, all these mark the importance of this event.
