THE LITHUANIAN TATARS ARE A UNIQUE ETHNIC GROUP THAT HAS LIVED IN LITHUANIA SINCE THE 16TH CENTURY. THE TATARS HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN THE COUNTRY'S POLITICAL AND CULTURAL LIFE, EDUCATION, AND CONTRIBUTED TO THE CREATION OF LITHUANIA AS A STATE.

THE TATAR COMMUNITY IN LITHUANIA HAS PRESERVED THE CUSTOMS, TRADITIONS, RELIGION AND CULTURAL HERITAGE OF ITS ETHNIC GROUP.

THE DECORATIVE FAMILY TREE REFLECTS THE COMMON VALUES OF LITHUANIANS AND TATARS - RESPECT FOR FAMILY AND TRADITIONS. THE SYMBOLS USED IN THE ORNAMENTATION REVEAL THE SIMILARITIES AND UNITY OF THE TWO NATIONS, WHICH HAVE DEVELOPED OVER A LONG PERIOD OF LIVING TOGETHER.
