Balloons flying with Turkish flags in Cappadocia


Thermal balloons flew in the Cappadocia region of Nevşehir Province (central Turkey), carrying Turkish flags on the occasion of Martyrs’ Day and the 109th anniversary of the naval victory in the battles of Çanakkale in 1915.

The thermal balloons, which began flying in the early morning hours of Monday, each carried a huge flag to decorate the atmosphere of Cappadocia, one of the most prominent tourist and historical destinations in Turkey.

The balloons continued to fly in the airspace of Cappadocia with Turkish flags for a full hour, carrying foreign tourists.

On March 18 of each year, Turkey commemorates the anniversary of the victory of the Ottoman Empire in the battles of Çanakkale in 1915 over the Allies, where British, French, New Zealand and Australian forces attempted to occupy Istanbul, the capital of the Ottoman Empire at that time, but the attempt failed.

The battle that took place in the Gallipoli area in Çanakkale was a turning point in the interest of the Turks, as they were victorious over the allied forces during World War I.
