The late evening of 17th January can be considered the start of celebrations of the 450th anniversary of Kuressaare City. Kuressaare was granted city rights on 8th May (1563), but different events will take place during the whole year. In spite of cold weather almost 200 youngsters with flashlights gathered in the Kuressaare Castle Yard in the evening of 17th January. By 10 PM they had formed a human chain in the shape of the logo created for Kuressaare for the 450th anniversary. The main organisers of the event were Lindia Lallo (Youth Work and Sports Specialist) and Kadri Randoja (Senior Architect) from Kuressaare City Government. Also former and current members of Kuressaare Youth Council had an important role in helping to organise the event. The 450th anniversary logo for Kuressaare was designed by Raul Vinni, the journalist of the local newspaper Saarte Hääl. Video about the event is available at
