Flag Relay

The WorldSkills Flag Relay is a unique project that took place for the first time in the history of the WorldSkills movement. The goal of the project was to bring together young professionals from all over the world, as well as to demonstrate the importance of vocational skills for economic growth and personal success.

The flag arrived at the WorldSkills Kazan 2019 Opening Ceremony on 22 August. The flag was brought to the stage by the Members of the Champion Trust - the WorldSkills Champions who work towards promoting WorldSkills values and ethical foundations.


On 27 August, during the WorldSkills Kazan 2019 Closing Ceremony, the WorldSkills Flag was handed over to the next host city – Shanghai, China.
